Startup Weekend Mackay was fortunate enough to gain the experience from Blue Chilli as one of the major prizes for first place. What is Blue Chilli? I spoke with Darren Cooke, who coordinated the prize for the Startup Weekend Mackay 2016:
90% of Startup ideas fail! 99 to Launch gives your Startup idea the unfair (advantage).
Blue Chilli is a team of executives and advisors that live and breathe startups. BlueChilli’s advisors include some of the most experienced and successful startup founders in the Australian tech startup industry, with skills across software and hardware development, product management, business modelling, marketing, growth hacking, pitching and sales.
The advisors have founded, invested in and advised over 100 startups already and used this experience to build the 99 to Launch course.
The prize for Startup Weekend Mackay was the 99toLaunch online course for startup founders, guiding them through 99 steps to launch their business in 99 days. The 99toLaunch program is valued at $1300.
BlueChilli works with you to master startup fundamentals like validation, product development, user experience design, business structure and models, user acquisition and startup marketing.
Thanks again Blue Chilli for this amazing prize, we will be keeping in touch with the winning team TROL-E throughout the course, so stay tuned.
