Sea Change Start Up Camp

30th April, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 1st May, 2016 @ 2:30 pm

geeksEntrepreneurs living on the Sapphire Coast (and SeaChangers considering it) will get their chance to emulate the likes of internet and technology legends Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Larry Brin (Google) or their Australian equivalents Mike Cannon-Brookes (Atlassian) and Matt Barrie (Freelancer.com), at this exciting web business event. Here’s how it works:
  • Anyone can participate… no web or business experience necessary (though it helps) – just bring energy and enthusiasm and your ideas!
  • Teams brainstorm to come up with a great idea and work intensively under our Start Up Camp guidance to make their business concept a sure-fire success.
  • The team’s idea is pitched to a specially-chosen panel of web-business experts and investors to receive invaluable feedback and advice on making it work.
