Scale up is a curated day for small businesses to step out of the day to day of their business to work ON their business. Held at One Roof on Friday 23rd November, this day has all the tools and resources to help creative businesses thrive.

From support on trademarks and IP, to submitting your BAS and contracting advice closing, a productive space to work and a community wine-down, One Roof provides everything a business owner needs to move forward, grow and smash their goals day in and day out.

What better way to start your Friday morning than breakfast with amazing founders who know how to scale!

Taking your business from startup to scaleup comes with a whole new set of challenges. In partnership with StartUp Vic we're pleased to bring you this panel event focusing on how to navigate these steps, and the unique experience of women on this journey.

It will be an intimate discussion with Alison Hardacre and Heidi Holmes, moderated by Georgia Beattie. Our panel will look at how to establish credibility as an entrepreneur, how to scale, how to take your business global, and more.

10.00am: Intellectual Property (IP) Workshop with Girl Friday IP

This workshop will walk you through IP in general and more specifically, trade marks and branding. Whether it’s a service or a product based business, branding can form a crucial part of a business. Girl Friday IP like to show people how good branding and trade mark protection go hand in hand; and can work wonders for a business.

Who is Girl Friday IP? Well they're not your typical IP firm. Their focus is to support creative thinkers by making intellectual property an accessible tool and a human experience. Fiona is here to take the scary and too hard basket factor out of intellectual property.
