Startup Weekend Melbourne 2019: Sustainability
Friday, May 10 - 12, 2019
Friday, May 10 - 12, 2019
Event starts at 5:30 pm
A weekend for change agents and people of action!
Startup Weekend Melbourne is back! If you're not familiar, Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where developers, designers and business development folks come together to pitch an idea, validate it, and launch a business, all in one weekend.
It's a great opportunity to test startup ideas, meet potential co-founders, build your community in Melbourne and launch your next startup!
Innovation is change that creates value
We believe entrepreneurship is the single greatest force in making the world a better place. We are encouraging entrepreneurs from all corners of Melbourne (and the world!) to come out, participate, and create ideas and opportunities that drive real-world social change.
What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy!
You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues, with a focus on sustainability.
Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely!
Important: You cannot have previously worked on your idea.
Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
- 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
- Benefits and discounts from our global partners
- One-on-one time with amazing mentors

- All the internet and coffee you can consume.
