Rockhampton to host 1st ever Startup Weekend June 2nd – 4th

Organised by Startup Capricorn, and Facilitated by Darren Rogan (mentor at both iLab Accelerator & River City Labs), Rockhampton will be host to their very own Startup Weekend on the weekend of the 2nd – 4th June 2017.

It is a 54-hour whirlwind event where you get to be part of building a business in a weekend, Silicon Valley style.  It’s about pitching, business model creation, coding, designing and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of a panel of judges and an opportunity to win great prizes. It is open to all people of all ages from all walks of life.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and teams organically form around the top ideas. All ideas, applications and platforms are welcome – remember that the sky is the limit!

Head along and join them for a life changing event!
