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 people are saying:
Startup weekend gives you valuable insight into how to make an idea succeed or fail fast, as Amin Bazzaz and Areej Alsheikh-Hussain, winner of Startup Weekend Women Brisbane 2015 explains:
“Startup weekend was an intense learning bootcamp which helped us to put all theory into action and validate an ideain 54 hours on a weekend. Excellent opportunity to meet like minded people and grow your network, learn heaps from mentors and teammates and get the most out of our weekend.

Air Sponge started with idea of Areej. She pitched her idea of “Tinder for carwash” and Amin joined her team as a tech teammate on the startup weekend. We launched the website and served 5 customers over the weekend and won the startup weekend. we kept meeting after startup weekend and by using startup weekend prize, we registered the company, then applied for ilabGerminate 8 program and got selected as one of 5 teams. later on we decided to shut down the business and currently, while Amin is working as back enddeveloper at Travello, Areej is working as a Business Development Associate for gemaker.”
