Startup Weekend is an awesome experiential learning opportunity that brings together people from all backgrounds and experiences to build concepts into minimum viable products in just 54 hours.

Pitch, test, validate, business model, design and build an idea in just one weekend. Whether you want to crash test an idea of your own or work on somebody else's idea, this test of your problem solving, team working and creativity skills is a fast-paced, fun event packed full of learning and the opportunity to meet some awesome new people.

Beautiful, interesting, awesome ideas are brought to life at Startup Weekend. Be a part of that creation.

Startup Weekend is for everyone – a dream team typically involves a mix of ages, genders, nationalities and backgrounds. You do NOT have to be a student to attend Startup Weekend and, in fact, many attendees aren’t.

You’ll have access to expert coaches throughout the weekend, as well as great workshops, fab venues, and a whole load of delicious local food to keep you fueled.

As well as all that, you will also have the opportunity to pitch and demo your product to a panel of judges on the Sunday. But no pressure – Startup Weekend aims to create teams, not startups.

Come find your co-founder, create something beautiful, build something amazing.
