The University of Sydney and the City of Sydney teamed up to inject knowledge into people's night out in April 2023. The event featured a wide range of topics from robotics and climate tech to cyber security and next-gen bio tech, catering to everyone's interests.
Raising the Bar 2023 was held for one night across 15 different venues scattered throughout inner Sydney's 'tech central' neighbourhoods, including Surry Hills, Haymarket, Camperdown, Ultimo, South Everleigh and Darlington North Everleigh. Attendees had the opportunity to choose from 30 free talks spread over the evening.
Each venue hosted two talks during the night, at 6 pm and 8 pm respectively. One was delivered by an academic from the University of Sydney while the other was presented by a local entrepreneur. The talks lasted for 30 minutes, allowing attendees to grab a drink, settle in, and immerse themselves in an evening of informal knowledge sharing.
