Bright Arena was founded in 2013 on a heritage of serial entrepreneurship and corporate innovation. We learned that entrepreneurial ways of thinking and working could help anyone - or any organisation - have more impact faster.
Through our startups, we found we loved building new businesses. We also discovered that we craved more of a human touch with our customers. While not as scalable, we found this work more rewarding. Bright Arena was born.
Today, we help humans adopt new mindsets and tools to make meaningful progress in a changing world. From multinationals to startups, research institutes to inventors, and governments to social enterprise, we use the tools of entrepreneurship to create positive impact.
We’re a team of independent thinkers who strive to be excellent at what we do and on paper we couldn't be more different. We're designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, corporate innovators, researchers, scientists, artists, inventors, analysts, musicians, photographers, readers, travellers, makers, thinkers, parents, partners, and carers.
This diversity brings a unique perspective to everything we do. You'll find working with us refreshing and rewarding. We'll push you to embrace the emerging future and we'll be with you every step of the way.
2018 marks our 5th year in business. And while we feel like we're just getting started, we've already earned the repeat business of some of Australia's largest (and smallest) companies.
It's rare that one business can serve the needs of multinationals, research institutes, governments, startups and scaleups, yet they have all turned to Bright Arena to transform the way they work.
We’re in at all levels in business, research, government and society. We’re doing exceptional work, we’re making a difference and we’re in business to stay in business. It’s time to double down to scale our impact.
The next few years will see us making bigger bets, championing collective impact, and scaling our transformation of work and society using the tools of entrepreneurship.
Our team will grow, we’ll partner and collaborate. Most of all, we’ll learn heaps and sleep well, proud of a job well done.
We stay curious and only make fact-based decisions.
The future is already here, just not evenly distributed.
The outcome matters more than the output required to get there.
Now beats later, and always be better than last time.
There is no substitute for experience and skin-in-the-game.
Second-hand knowledge comes with biases and at best informs, at worst harms.
Constraints are beautiful and obstacles give opportunities to learn.
Keep it simple, keep it fast, evolve immediately.
We stick to our word and we trust others to do the same.
We default to trust, and trust can be unearned.
We walk our talk.
We are authentic to ourselves and others.
We have the hard conversations early.
We lead from the emerging future.
We always do the right thing.
We commit and always deliver.
We leave our ego at the door.
We partner with our customer.
We combine the methods, mindset and mettle of successful startups to drive scalable new growth. Our clients love our skin-in-the-game approach, unique flexibility, and ability to execute at speed.
