Transcript

Tobi:                 Well, I think I bought 25 last year and by the sounds of things, you’re going bigger.

Chris:                Santa Claus.

Tobi:                 I feel like I need to go bigger.

Chris:                Yeah, I like this. I like where this is headed.

Tobi:                 I’ll buy 50 tickets. 50 tickets, I’m going to give them away. This year I’m going to create rules. One rule, the only rule, maximum of two tickets per company.

Tobi:                 Hey guys, it’s that time of year. Startup Grind.

Chris:                Back at it.

Tobi:                 2019.

Chris:                It is. Bigger and better than ever.

Tobi:                 Wow. Last year was amazing. Last year, how many days was last year?

Chris:                Two days.

Tobi:                 Two days?

Chris:                Two days. About 1,500 people over the two days. This year, 3,000.

Tobi:                 3,000 people over two days.

Chris:                3,000 and we’re adding a second stage. The exhibition hall is massive. We’re going to dedicate a networking space. People can connect this year. Last year, people couldn’t connect. We had them spread out. Now we’ve got it, you can sit down and connect with each other.

Tobi:                 One of my things that I drive into our team here at Cubes is fail fast, fail forward, and at least you’re constantly moving forward. I’m glad you took last year’s learnings and have adopted to give it some lift this year.

Chris:                Yeah. We had too many speakers, so we’re going to cut down there. It was just bombarded. People said their heads were going to explode in a good way. Cut that down and then people wanted to connect with each other, so we made a dedicated space, got this whole beach vibe going on because of summer.

Tobi:                 Can’t wait for that.

Chris:                We’ve moved it from Thursday and Friday to a Monday.

Tobi:                 Monday, Tuesday.

Chris:                We added a bunch of tactical, and this year got Microsoft who have giving us the second stage. All the tactical learning. We have nothing but desks in there and you learn stuff. Everything from venture capital, social media, exits. ASX is going to do a workshop on how to get your money out and do an exit and list on the stock exchange. Lots and lots of learning. Then, of course, big massive founders on the main stage.

Tobi:                 If you didn’t see last year, we’re going to quickly flash to that.

Speaker 3:        There’s only two kinds of entrepreneurs. One entrepreneur is scared. The other one is lying.

Speaker 4:        Empowering the people with the culture, the people of your organization with a culture to make choices that take risks. Asking for forgiveness and not permission.

Tobi:                 Then this year who we got on?

Chris:                This year, look, I can’t announce them all because we’ve announced eight so far and I’ve got about another 50, but we’ve got Holly from Kabam Games. She had a $1 billion exit, now a YC partner. We’ve got Mada, another unicorn from SF with branch.io. We’ve got venture funds from Baidu, SOSV. $250 million funds from Australia and AirTree, Nicki coming from Blackbird, Rotten Tomatoes and Canva, homegrown hero, one of the co-founders from Canva, a multibillion dollar business coming down. First time, I think, they’ve spoke in Melbourne, as far as I know.

Tobi:                 It’s going to be big.

Chris:                At least I’m pitching it that way.

Tobi:                 What are tickets worth?

Chris:                They’re going up after Friday, $350 a pop.

Tobi:                 $350 a pop.

Chris:                They’re sitting at $220 right now.

Tobi:                 $220.

Chris:                How many are you buying this year?

Tobi:                 Well, I think I bought 25 last year and by the sounds of things, you’re going bigger.

Chris:                Santa Claus.

Tobi:                 I feel like I need to go to bigger.

Chris:                Yeah, I like this. I like where this is headed.

Tobi:                 I’ll buy 50 tickets. 50 tickets, I’m going to give them away. This year, I’m going to create rules. One rule, the only rule, maximum of two tickets per company I will give. The rest you got to buy. But, I’ve got 50 seats, so 50 companies, sorry, 25 companies at a maximum, or alternatively, 50 individuals from 50 different companies. Meaning that I’m only going to give two tickets per company.

Chris:                This is what happens when you work at Cubes.

Tobi:                 Yeah, well this is also going to go out to LinkedIn, so actually, I may have to buy some more for Cubes members as well. There you go. Tickets go up after Friday. Last year I was there, man. It was phenomenal. Nothing short of phenomenal, and it sounds to me like Chris is actually going to trump that significantly this year.

Chris:                Come on down. Thank you very much.

Tobi:                 Always fun. Yeah, of course, man. Yeah.

Chris:                Thank you very much.

Tobi:                 All right, guys.

Chris:                See you, guys.

Tobi:                 Comment in the section below.
