First Wednesday Connect

Join the community of creative business people, innovators and entrepreneurs at First Wednesday Connect!

A regular monthly get-together aiming to energise, share stories and encourage collaboration between entrepreneurs, researchers, investors and innovators of all sorts. Hear from Canberra’s budding entrepreneurs in our high intensity 60 second pitching format and meet new people over drinks and nibbles.

Presented as part of the annual DESIGN Canberra festival (4-24 November 2019) which celebrates and promotes Canberra as a global city of design. A Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre initiative.

It is free to come along, although make sure you register for a chance to score yourself a prize! (*You must be at the event to claim the prize.)


First Wednesday Connect is presented by Canberra Innovation Network

The Canberra Innovation Network (CBRIN) supports and promotes innovation in Canberra… then we get out of the way and let it happen! CBRIN launched in November 2014 on the back of a progressive local government and collaboration between Canberra’s world class education and research institutions, who now represent our Foundation Members: ANU, CIT, Data 61, CSIRO, University of Canberra, UNSW Canberra.


Selected Civic Square festival programs have been made possible with support from the ACT Government under the City Renewal Authority’s City Grants program.

DESIGN Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
