About Something Digital

Something Digital was created in 2018 to bring Queensland’s digital community together and strengthen our State’s digital ecosystem.

Whilst technology is key to solving complex problems, it is the digital piece that converts the tech into human centred platforms that can be used, marketed and sold. Digital innovation is the bridge between the tech and humanity.

Through its initiatives, Something Digital provides our ecosystem with opportunities to build digital capabilities, collaborate with other organisations and showcase some of the great innovations happening right here in our backyard.

So whether you are a founder, a CXO, a manager or a person who gets stuff done; in a startup, enterprise, small business, government department or academic body; fulfilling a tech, leadership, marketing or other role which leverages digital innovation, then we have something digital for you!  

Join us at one (or many) of our events throughout the year including the Night Nomads, our Warmup Events, Riff Sessions, the Main Festival, the Something School and Open Studios

Our superpower is our ability to build something from nothing. We create and curate knowledge-based experiences which brings people together for a little bit of magic ... and a lot of inspiration!
