Sustainability Startup Weekend

Create ideas and opportunities to drive real-world social change, and contribute to supporting a sustainable future

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!

The 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!

Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing throughout the weekend with brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, the weekend will culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations where your team will present a final pitch to all attendees, receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs and be in the running to win awesome prizes to upskill and get ahead in the entrepreneurial game, such as a prototyping workshop run by UTS Rapido.

Your ticket includes:

  • 5 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners (including a free .co domain & Google credits)
  • One-on-one time with experienced mentors
  • A new network of eager developers, designers, and up-and-coming entrepreneurs like yourself to engage and change the world with.

Early Bird tickets are on sale until April 12, so grab your ticket now to save $10!
