Description

Are you a passionate individual who wants to change the world but don't know how? Perhaps you're interested in growing a business with an emphasis on sustainability; or have an idea that you're bursting to share with the world and need the skills, contacts and tools to make it happen. Well, you’re in luck!


Sustainability Startup Weekend is on from May 17 - 19 and is your chance to come together with entrepreneurially-minded creatives, developers, and designers from all corners of Sydney to participate, and create ideas and opportunities to drive real-world social change, and contribute to supporting a sustainable future.


You’ll learn how to successfully launch a business venture and meet experienced mentors, like-minded co-founders, investors and sponsors while you brew up and bring to life your brilliant ideas - all within 54 hours!


Kicking off with Friday night pitches, you and your team will work throughout the weekend to brainstorm, develop a business plan and begin basic prototyping. We'll then finish up with Sunday night demos and presentations where your team will present a final pitch to all attendees and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurial judges:
