UPDATE: If you're keen to attend, you can land one of five tickets to the Townsville Startup Weekend, thanks to James Cook University and SafetyCulture! Get your entrepreneur cap on, and tell us why you'd like to be there via email to townsville@startupweekend.org. CLOSES COB TODAY - NOVEMBER 17.

The Townsville Startup Weekend brings passionate potential & existing entrepreneurs together to have a life-changing experience by creating real startups over 54 hours! 

It's on from Friday, November 20 until Sunday, November 22, 2015, in Townsville at Education Central, at James Cook University. 

The Weekend is also part of the Global Startup Battle, an epic challenge featuring more than 275 events across the world with amazing prizes to be won.

Don't worry if you don't have an idea!

You'll listen to passionate pitches from others on the Friday night and pick the one you love the most.  If you do have an idea, you'll pitch it and have just 60 seconds to get others (including IT developers, business people, designers and more) interested in working with you.

There's a team of experts to mentor you across Saturday and Sunday in all aspects of your fledgling startup - from IT to business to design and more. 

It all wraps up on Sunday afternoon where you give a final pitch to a panel of local startup and entrepeneurial figures - with lots more help on offer (and some prizes!) for the most successful teams.

Can't make the whole weekend?  Then join us just for Friday night pitches, and/or on Sunday afternoon to see the final presentations and the success of the weekend. 

You can meet the community, network with local entrepreneurs and mentors, and experience all the excitement first-hand.

Don't wait, register now at http://townsville.up.co. Spaces are limited, so don't miss this awesome opportunity.
