StartCon teams up with Sparrow

Written by David Shepherd on August 22, 2016 in


StartCon is Australia’s largest event for entrepreneurs, startups, marketers, and growth & innovation teams. This year the conference is focusing around the death of the unicorns and the birth of the cockroach. A startup focused on weathering the storm, rather than being a 1 in a million super high growth company.

Last year the Sparrow team was inspired by many of the speakers, so this year we needed be involved. We’ve teamed up with StartCon to provide entrepreneurs the startup way to book flights – with a startup, of course!


Booking your flights is easy – simply tap on the StartCon tile to pre-fill your flight dates to Sydney, and join Sparrow at this awesome event.

Here’s some more information about StartCon:

Ben Sand, one of Sparrow’s advisors is also speaking and discussing his journey in the Startup world via Meta – his Augmented Reality company.

StartCon is hosted over 2 days in Sydney’s Randwick Racecourse:
Day 1 – November 26th – is focused on early-stage Startups looking to kickstart growth.
Day 2 – November 27th – is focused on high-growth startups looking to scale and grow faster.

They have managed an incredible speaker lineup including:

Andrew Chan – Growth @ Uber
Elena Verna – VP, Growth @ Survey Monkey
Nate Moch – VP, Product Teams & Growth @ Zillow
Sean Ellis – Founder @ GrowthHackers
Hiten Shah – Co-Founder @ Kissmetrics & Crazy Egg
The Wizard of Moz – Rand Fishken (Personally, with an SEO background, I’m a big fan of Rand) Founder & Former CEO @ Moz
Of course Ben Sand – Co-Founder @ Meta
And more! Seriously there are too many epic speakers to list.

To book your StartCon tickets via Sparrow, tap the “More Info” button in the app to be redirected to the StartCon site. And obviously, the easiest way to fly there is with Sparrow!

Adrian and I will have a stall on the day, so please come and say hi!
