Techstars Startup Weekend
February 16 - February 18
One event on September 19, 2018 at 12:00am
Develop a venture in 54 hours!
Do you have an idea you’d like to pursue or a problem you’d like to solve but don’t know where to start or who to start with? The hardest part of starting up is starting out and on February 16, UTS is hosting a startup weekend for women across Sydney who are interested in learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.
You’ll be signing up for a 54-hour frenzy where you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, cofounders, and sponsors who are there to help you get your idea off the ground. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, the weekend will culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations where your team will have the opportunity to pitch to judges and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs.
The theme of this startup weekend is social impact, so we’ll be supporting ideas that will have a postive impact on society and contribute to a brighter future for our world. Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on before.
