Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event that brings together Western Australian designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things. It is being held from 6pm Friday 21st to 9pm Sunday 23rd November at Spacecubed, Ground Floor 45 St Georges Terrace, Perth.
Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Ideas are voted on with teams formed around the most popular ideas. Each idea is then thoroughly tested using lean startup principles to see if it will work and is worth pursuing with some teams having to change their business model or idea throughout the weekend. On the Sunday evening each team pitches to a panel of judges consisting of seasoned startup industry professionals with prizes awarded.
Discounted early bird tickets are available here.
