We started Ideas Hoist in September 2012 as a side project of The Social Deck – the concept is pretty simple:

We interview Australians making ideas happen.

Our aim is to build a community that can learn from each other’s experiences, promote each other’s ideas and generally help each other out where possible. We hope to inspire Australians who have an idea to make it happen!

Our vibrant community is steadily growing and we’d love for you to be part of it.

Here’s how you can get involved

The first thing you should do is subscribe to our awesome monthly email of great interviews and hand-picked inspiration from Australians making ideas happen. 

Join 750+ Australians making ideas happen.

If you’re an entrepreneur, social innovator, professional, designer, inventor, artist, creative, marketer, thought leader or anyone else making an idea happen and would like to be interviewed, simply fill out this form and we’ll be in touch within a couple of days (I promise).

The next thing you should do is check out our huge archive of interviews – it’ll give you a great idea of the awesome Australians making ideas happen that we feature on the site.

If you particularly enjoy one of our interviews share it with your friends and spread the word about Australians making ideas happen. If you’d like to find out more about the person or their idea, why not continue the interview and leave your question in the comments – I bet they’ll respond.
