Myriad Departure Lounge

The Myriad Festival is Australia’s best networking event for entrepreneurs and this year there is an unprecedented link to Silicon Valley.

Myriad organisers have searched high and low for the craziest success stories, innovative tech and remarkable ideas to create something indescribably special this year. They have even flown over 100 Silicon Valley stars across the Pacific to Brisbane for the Festival. With over 100 speakers and 5,000 participants, Myriad 2018 is the most vibrant festival yet.

In October 2017, Queensland’s First Chief Entrepreneur, Honorary Adjunct Professor and Transformer Advisory Circle Member Mark Sowerby reached out to Bond University with a proposal: 20 tickets for our students, alumni and industry connections to travel on a chartered Qantas flight from San Francisco to Brisbane for the annual Myriad Festival.

But it was to be no ordinary flight. It was a once in a lifetime  opportunity to develop connections and network with more than 100 A-list entrepreneurs, tech talent and investors from Silicon Valley.

From here Myriad Mission was created!

9-11 May             Silicon Valley Study Tour touring Netflix, Google, Facebook and more

12-14 May          'Nerds on a Bird' QF6074 from San Francisco to Brisbane

15-18 May          Brisbane Study Tour and Myriad Festival

With an overwhelming response we could not accommodate everyone to be on the flight or attend the Myriad Festival in Brisbane.

So we have brought the Myriad Air and Festival to the Bond campus by creating the Myriad Departure Lounge. Mirroring an airport lounge, this space will provide a business class experience to our students, alumni, community and industry!
