Startup Weekends bring together ideas and people who can act on ideas in a way that quickly tests and validates your dream within 54 hours at far less cost, time and personal angst than anyone can do alone. In a room of hipsters, hackers and hustlers you will articulate and refine and test and validate your idea in super-quick time.
And you can win prizes and enormous glory while you do it

Startup Weekend Byron Bay kicks off on Friday November 20 and completes Sunday the 22nd and is cohosted by SAE Creative Media Institute Byron Bay and StartInno in the Ewingsdale Road Campus and Byron Bay Arts and Industrial Estate respectively.

The weekend is part of Global Startup Battle 2015 which means local creatives and entrepreneurs will be joining of thousands of innovators from across the globe for one of the most innovative weekends of the year. Byron Bay will be one of the 250 cities competing to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week.

And its not all about tech either. Technology is often a driver and enabler of change but good ideas must also satisfy business needs and provide a purpose that compels a customer to take up the product or service. Hence rounding out your idea in a broad forum is critical to developing its validity. Startup Weekends around the world have brought together designers, creatives or anyone with business ideas together with tech to produce amazing things!

So whether you have new ideas or just want to see and hear the latest in innovation get along and participate as either a player or sponsor. Go to Startup Weekend Byron Bay and grab a ticket for what is shaping up to be a great weekend.
