Event Information

Join Silicon Valley venture capitalist and future of work expert Bri Kimmel (investor in Deel, Webflow, Public, Tonal) and Linktree CEO Alex Zaccaria for a discussion on why 2023 will be the year anyone can become a founder.

- A recent study conducted by Bri's venture firm Worklife found 70% of people started a "side project" since the onset of the pandemic. From podcasts to self-published books to multi-billion startups, the future of work is more creative than ever.

- Why Bri and Alex believe Australia will continue to set the tone for remote workers and creative entrepreneurs globally like the world's biggest fitness creator Kayla Itsines, lifestyle blogger turned EIC of Vogue China Margaret Zhang, and the millions of creatives starting businesses using Australian founded tools like Canva and Linktree.

- Tips and best practices to turn your passion into your full-time gig.

Come for drinks on the rooftop of the MCA followed by a short fireside chat for founders, freelancers, and anyone who is thinking about starting something.

Bri Kimmel is the Founder of Worklife Ventures, a “Future of Work” focused venture capital firm that invests in companies whose products enable greater work-life balance, freedom, and flexibility. Worklife is backed by the founders of Cameo, Twitch, Spotify, and YouTube.

She became one of the best-performing VCs of the pandemic by percentage returns when nine of her early-stage investments became unicorns when the world transitioned to remote work overnight. Today, the combined market cap of Worklife’s portfolio exceeds $50 billion and includes companies like Deel, Hopin, Pipe, Tonal, Webflow and many others.

Now, she’s betting that the next generation of founders won’t come from Silicon Valley, they’ll come from everywhere— and they’re as likely to be influencers or immigrants as they are engineers or MBAs.

To empower the next generation of founders, Brianne recently launched her first Worklife Studios location in Los Angeles, where she’s creating a space for remote workers, creators, entrepreneurs and artists to gather, learn, shop, host events, design and create the defining projects of tomorrow.
