Startup Weekend Brisbane Women #SWBNEwomen

October 9, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - October 11, 2015 @ 8:30 pm

Women. Girl Geeks. Developers. Designers. Marketers. Business Folk.
This is a call for you to get your idea off the ground surrounded by like minded women.

Startup Weekend women is your chance to collaborate and get involved with a group of motivated individuals who are hell-bent on disrupting their industry of choice. The event is aimed at female participants however men are welcome to participate, mentor and encouraged to get involved.
What can you expect? Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea. Teams organically form around the top ideas (determined by popular vote). Then, it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend wraps up with teams presenting their startup to local entrepreneurial leaders with an opportunity for critical feedback.It’s not about the prize but it helps. What they say: Startup weekend gives you the valuable insight into how to make an idea succeed or fail fast, as Molly Taylor, Managing Director, Code Heroes and Startup Weekend attendee, explains:

“The most beneficial part of the weekend for me was getting to sit down and talk to some great mentors. They provided advice from technical to monetisation, and shared their experiences of being in a startup, the lows, the highs and the pitfalls along the way. I came away from the weekend with renewed energy and purpose to work on my ideas.”

We know that the women of Brisbane are full of creative and entrepreneurial talent, and in a safe environment that inspires risk taking and innovation we know they will create something amazing. We are a passionate group of female entrepreneurs who decided to come together and design a new experience to welcome and empower creative, talented and curious women.
