Do you want to go on a mission to Silicon Valley and visit the worlds leading tech organisations including Google, Facebook, Twitter and Apple?

Apply here before the 24th July: http://startupqld.org/2015/06/12/applications-now-open-for-startup-catalyst-2015/

The 2015 mission will take place over a ten day period from 28 September to 7 October 2015 and will immerse the participants in Silicon Valley’s rich culture of high-growth entrepreneurship. The group will visit the offices of global tech companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and Apple, attend networking events with startup founders and student entrepreneurs, meet with fellow Australians who are running startups in the Valley, and take part in educational events to equip them with an understanding of what is involved in launching a globally successful tech startup.
