This message is for workers who ended their career at Ford on Friday 7 October 2016

We don’t know each other yet. We are startup people from Pollenizer. Jacks-of-all-trades doing a little bit of everything to make something new. We spend most of our days helping people to create new businesses. We work across industries such as health, energy, telecommunications and many others. The businesses we help to create make them better.

You have a craft. A dedication. You have given your careers to making great Australian car. But now that has been taken away.

In our work, we have learned that as fast as old businesses end, new ones emerge and that anybody can start them. All it takes to start them is to say “I have started” and quickly others will join. This doesn’t mean risking everything. It can be done on the side. But you are in charge. You decide.

You may not be an ‘ideas person’ and you may not want to be a founder to carry the burden of a new business. But what if it was possible to join someone else’s? What if you could use your superpowers to help other people to make something great that you are proud to be a part of?

We’d love it if you could join us at in Geelong and spend a couple of days exploring some ideas. We’ll share everything we know about how to start something that is yours and introduce you to other people in a similar situation who you might collaborate with. It will be an energising couple of days and completely free. At the end of it you will have some new tools in your kit, some new friendships and a different perspective you can use to lay down a road to a possible future.

We hope to see you there

This is a message to the innovation community of Australia. Friends, we are on the bleeding edge of the disruptive wave. Those that know me, will know I am a ‘stubborn optimist’. It is very hard for people like me to imagine that the future is worse than the past. You...

This is a guest post by Leighton Wells from Runway Geelong.  Geelong is transitioning, of this – there can be little doubt. Transitions are of endings but they’re also of beginnings. It’s these beginnings and the possibility that they bring that are truly exciting....
