Nurturing And Tapping-Into Your Community's Human Capital

  • Venture Cafe Sydney 58 Waterloo Road Macquarie Park (map)

Human capital is considered one of the most overlooked or taken for granted business assets. The success of any organisation and economy ultimately depends on the people who work there. So is there more we can do to nurture and leverage the human capital in our local communities?

Successful efforts for regional acceleration emerge where capital is defined in ways beyond financial: creative, social, political, inspiration and of course, human.

We see human capital maximised in thriving global entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystems where founders rely on their communities to connect with the partners, investors and suppliers that they need to succeed. Likewise seasoned professionals and academics compound their utility for their employers by leveraging relationships and know-how within their reach.

Our inspiring panel led by Fiona Reyerink, Executive Manager & Director of Engagement at Macquarie University will explore how we can supercharge our available human capital in both online-and-offline contexts to leverage the amazing people, programs, resources at our fingertips to drive innovation and collective prosperity.
