About the William Buck and Spark Festivals partnership

As startup-friendly accountants and advisors, we understand the passion and the pain of a startup’s journey.

Our business experiences mean we know the challenges of being a startup, whether it be scaling, raising capital, attracting talent or navigating the changing regulatory environment.

We also know the opportunities startups have when they’re part of a network – thriving in an ecosystem where they can be inspired, supported and united for success.

That’s why, as business enablers, we’re following that Spark.

We’re proud to be a Gold Sponsor of Spark Festival – a not-for-profit which brings together startups, small business, corporates, government, universities, hubs, incubators, students and investors in Australia – to build a program of events and activities over a 17-day program to strengthen the entire digital ecosystem.

As part of the Spark Festival events, we aim to share:

  • How a startup can be tax effective and overcome compliance issues
  • How-to navigate the changing regulatory landscape
  • How to effectively structure for scale and unlock capital
  • How-to access equity-based crowd funding, grants and incentives appropriately
  • How-to attract and retain global talent.

It’s through this connection that William Buck support knowledge sharing events; offer learning experiences and provide guidance to help solve sector pain points – no matter what part of their journey.
