Why here? Why now?
South Australia has always been a key developer of tech talent that has not only had significant impact on local businesses, but in many cases our talent has created, developed and delivered world leading products and services. South Australia has also punched well above its weight in the music industry with many of our creatives reaching international recognition. Adelaide's recent designation as UNESCO 'City of Music' opens further opportunities for both the creative and technological sides of the coin on a global level. TechJam brings together this pool of amazing talent to create businesses that will lead international markets, create jobs, and build a creative future for South Australia.
