Annual Funding Event Showcase Evening

ADM’s Showcase Evening celebrates gospel-shaped innovation and entrepreneurship.

The Showcase Evening follows on from our Annual Funding Event pitch day where ADM awards $60,000 to Australian Christian women leading gospel-shaped initatives.

6pm - Join us for canapés and networking with other Christians interested in fostering innovation.

6.30pm - ADM Visiting Fellow Michaela O'Donnell Long will give a short keynote address, “Imagination, risk and innovation: Why the entrepreneurial mindset matters for Christians”. Following Dr. O’Donnell Long’s talk, four women from ADM's 2019 Incubator Program (the next step after our Annual Funding Event) will make pitches so that you can learn about the exciting work they’re doing through their organisations.
