Townsville's Startup Weekend in 2014 (plus photos!) was a smash hit and we're back to do it again in 2015.

Startup Weekend Townsville 2015

25 to 27 September 2015

Hosted at Education Central, James Cook University in Townsville

This is our largest community-run Startup Weekend to date and has a strong focus on student and school involvement and connecting to the startup community.  The Startup Weekend will feature more than just the weekend, though!  We're holding a Networking & Pitch Practice night a week before the full Startup Weekend, where anyone can join in to hone their skills and have fun doing it.  After the weekend, the excitement continues with further networking and development opportunities for teams that will keep pursuing their ideas!

Our community, Startup Townsville is just 1 year young and in that time, it's growing strong and fast!  With this Startup Weekend, we're going to further ignite the flame of innovation in the region and mentor the next generation of entrepreneurs.   Come along and help make your mark!

Startup Weekend Townsville 2014 - 1

We're in the process of lining up judges, mentors, and speakers right now, but suffice to say there's some exciting things in store for the weekend.  You'll talk to successful local startup founders and CEOs through to design creatives and other international figures.

If you're in North Queensland or just want to join us for the weekend, come along to Townsville Startup Weekend 2015!    Tickets are available now!

Even if you can't make it, join our Meetup group, and check out the awesome live updates on Twitter.  We'll have some super-duper videos and reports out of the weekend too.

This is our first event associated with Startup Spring, a fantastic initiative organised by StartupAus. Check it out!
