SYDNEY STARTUPCAMP IV

October 8 - 10, 2010

@ ATP Innovations

 

Do You Want to Start a New Tech Venture and/or Improve Your Startup Skills?

Get fresh ideas and turn your new ideas into action; fast track your startup success at the Sydney StartupCamp IV organised by Seed Accelerator and Startup Australia.

Our StartupCamp is no ordinary startup event! It's a high-performance event where like-minded entrepreneurs gather for a weekend of company creation: a concentrated, intensive hands-on event where you start with brainstorming for a new idea on Friday evening and by Saturday evening you can literally be in business ready to generate your first lead or customer. On Sunday the grand final will include pitching your new venture to a panel of professional investors and business leaders!

Just don’t think it’s just for developers. It's marketing maestros, design gurus, business development wizards, financial masters, legal geniuses, and the specialists of startups – the jack of all trades coming together as one unit, creating a harmony that can only be envied by the corporate world!

StartupCamp is exciting, hands-on, interactive, entrepreneurial, full of innovation, fun and fast moving: to accelerate your growth and... your business success!
