Dropbox will join fellow leaders in innovation—including NASA, Lucasfilm, Pixar, Hyperloop, Girls in Tech, This American Life, The Mill, Frog and HAX Accelerator—for three days of panel discussions, keynote talks, workshops, and exclusive Pause experiences.
With a strong following among Australian startups, Dropbox has partnered and collaborated with many industry stand-outs, including Xero, Fishburners and York Butter Factory.
