Tune those dials to Radio Adelaide 101.5 FM on Monday morning, when a new show dedicated to uncovering emerging technologies and innovative businesses hits the airwaves.
From 6-6.30am every Monday, co-presenters David Grice and Troy Sincock will chat to business founders and entrepreneurs and provide local and international insight into various industries.
The duo will also explore the challenges and emerging trends among the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
David, who has a background in the music and entertainment industry, says the iN Show will allow thinkers and entrepreneurs to have a space for ideas and to share their offerings.
“I noticed there was a bit of a gap in the market locally for start-ups to spriuk their wares and tell people about their products and services,” he says.
“We want to build a community for start-ups and emerging businesses and give them a platform to share what they are doing, and to promote events locally and nationally.”
Various industries – from biotechnology to IoT (Internet of Things) – will be explored in a bid to build confidence and inspiration among the start-up community.
“What we are trying to promote is that entrepreneurialism isn’t something that is reserved for the elite,” David says.
“We will look at small businesses and how they can grow globally, we need to give people a voice.”
Journalist Claire Murphy will present ‘iN the news’ and share the hottest events each week.
Other segments will include ‘iNnovator of the week’ with SA business Augment Space on the July 3 show.
Listeners can also expect to hear from start up mentor Paul Daly, the ‘iNfluencer of the week’.
“We are looking forward to sharing some great stories and helping build a strong community,” David says.
“We are already getting inundated with businesses who want to have their stories told.”
The iN Show launches on Monday, July 3, from 6am on Radio Adelaide.
Entrepreneurs Week is a collaboration between Brand SA, the Adelaide Entrepreneurship Forum, Adelaide City Council, the State Government and other stakeholders, and is supported by News Corp Australia. Check out the full program here.
