Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event which brings together people with skill sets – from software developers and designers, to marketers and business people – to build applications and develop a credible business around them.

Whether you launch a successful startup, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside your usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave Startup Weekend better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.

The weekend is far from being an easy task, and you will finish up on the Sunday evening completely exhausted, but if the last 5 Startup Weekends here in Perth are anything to go by then you will quickly realise that it’s an invaluable experience in life to really push yourself to the limit and discover what can be created in just 1 weekend when you put some bright minds into a room!

Join us as once again we prove that being the most remote city on the planet is no obstacle to online business.
