Townsville Startup Weekend – November 20-22

@JCU Townsville Startup Weekend – November 20-22

The Townsville Startup Weekend is on again from November 20-22 (date change).

Startup Weekend events have been held in more than 150 countries around the globe.

The goal of a Startup Weekend is to bring passionate, like-minded people together to learn, network, and bridge the gap between trades and disciplines.

Startup weekends are 54 hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams and build products.

This isn't a lecture or conference. You'll have an amazing and fun experience while building an actual startup over a weekend!

You don't have to have your own 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 have just 60 seconds to pitch it and get others interested in your idea!

After you've formed or joined a team, the fun begins as you start solving the problem, looking at how you'll build your solution and getting under way. In just a weekend, you'll be finding real-world clients and determining how your solution will solve their problems. For the developers and technical participants, you’ll build a prototype to demonstrate your idea as well.

There are expert mentors, guest speakers, great benefits worth hundreds of dollars, and prizes for the winners!
