Supported by City of Perth, Skills of the Modern Age and Spacecubed, Startup Weekend brings together Western Australian designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains, providing the perfect opportunity for anyone, of any background to kick start their business ideas amongst like minded individuals. Coming to Spacecubed on December 6, join the likes of Functionally, Appollo and Flanno as winners of this epic weekend and see how the opportunities arise for your business or idea. We’re keen to see what 2019 brings home for the Perth startup community!

Held all across the world, Startup Weekend always follows the same basic model:

PITCH: Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea

Coming together for a weekend, we kick off with ideas. Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from peers and other attendees. From here, teams will form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote). It can be a social enterprise or a tech venture - anything and everything is welcome!

BUILD: The three-day frenzy begins

Each team will dive head first into business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation for their formed idea. There’s unlimited coffee, free food and plenty of free-flowing ideas, as this fast-paced and highly creative event challenges everyone who attends.

LAUNCH: Fully formed business presentations 

The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders, mentors and those in the startup community with another opportunity for critical feedback, and of course, a winner!

Startup Weekend is the best place to grow and explore the idea of entrepreneurship, just like they do in Silicon Valley. Fail fast, learn faster is the mantra for the weekend. So, if you’re looking for a challenge and the chance to grow your network, build something real, refine your skillset, be inspired, and most of all, have fun, Startup Weekend is perfect for you.

Each event is fully catered and rooted in the startup spirit of working hard, but playing harder. Whether participants found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, find a creative collaborator, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to have a heap of fun, and to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.

If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for one of the most challenging and exciting weekends of the startup calendar.
