Your idea in 54 hours
Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
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. 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 worked previously 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
- A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
- All the internet and coffee you can consume.

After finishing university with an Agricultural Science degree, I went home to the family farm at Dingo. From there I became Managing Director of Capgrains Cooperative, which supplied inputs and provided a marketing service for it’s broadacre farmer members. With two others, we founded a Grain Trading Company, Pentag Commodities, that specialised in marketing Queensland and Northern NSW grain. In 2016, Pentag was ultimately sold to the Chinese agribusiness company, Coffco. My primary role with CaneTrack has been in understanding our clients needs and communicating that to Ben, our software developer.
