Reckon you could build your innovation skills or solve a problem in your community in one weekend? We reckon.
Startup Weekend is designed to challenge you to learn, step outside your comfort zone, innovate, disrupt, and take action. From parents, to students, to retirees, to current and former business owners, all you need to participate in Startup Weekend is a bit of curiosity and the desire to give it a go.
Gather with fellow Dunedin locals to kick off on Friday night and find your team. Together, brainstorm your way through first tries, second iterations, third attempts, and going-back-to-first-attempts-because-that-one-was-better-anyway revisions. You’ll create a business plan and throw together the best basic prototype (don’t forget to test it!) you can. After that, get ready to show it off Sunday night with demos and presentations.
Tickets cost $99. All teams are mentored by amazing industry leaders and will receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. You don’t have to come away with a brand new business, either - the awesome skills you learn can be applied at your existing business or workplace!
Startup Weekend is a full weekend-long experience. Your ticket also includes:
ALL meals over the course of the weekend (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)
One-on-one time with amazing mentors from your community
A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs
Free internet and free coffee!
Startup Weekend is an amazing opportunity to build, refresh, explore, and learn innovation skills and is open to everyone in the community. We know Ōtepoti is full of seriously bright sparks, so we can’t wait to see you there.
When: Friday, July 30th - Sunday, August 1st
