What is Sydney Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event which focuses on building a web or mobile application which could form the basis of a credible business over the course of a weekend. The weekend brings together people with different skillsets – primarily software developers, graphics designers and business people – to build applications and develop a commercial case around them.
Registered participants arrive on Friday evening at 6pm and by 7.30pm start pitching their ideas to the audience. Contenders have 60 seconds of pitching to prove their ideas worthy and teams form around the best ideas. Over the course of the weekend, each team develops a beta concept to be present to the Judging panel on Sunday evening. Maybe you’ll start of the next Instragram out of Startup Weekend?
