Special shout out to Michelle (MJ) Brodie, Max and the Stone & Chalk crew for your help in planning and on the night – couldn’t have done it without you 🙂

Brand South Australia certainly punches about its weight and so there are so many linkages with Austin Sister Cities International to explore.

If you can see the potential here, a bit like sitting on golden opportunities, encourage economic development colleagues, entrepreneurs and founders, innovators and creators, State/Territory Government, local governments and elected members to get in touch and take a lead on:

– Catalysing sister city relationships around entrepreneurship, events, and experiences, startups, scaleups and small businesses with collaborative activities

– Identifying who should be involved and will benefit and how can you take your sister city relationships and friendly states (SA – TX) to the next level with direct investment, a joint vision, strategy and action plan

– Practical connections and introductions between both sister cities to help reimagine what this could be

– For Adelaide to Austin and South Australia to Texas, if this is something you’d like to explore, please Express Your Interest here
