2015 saw the 1st Startup Weekend run on the Central Coast, to help catalyse local journeys of entrepreneurship, enabled by technology.
Startups are not your next small business. Enabled by technology, they serve global market demands, chasing rapid scaling and growth. With NBN connectivity and plenty of local digital skills, we want to transform the conversation about creation of viable futures for local youth and residents.
In a region with amazing lifestyle opportunities, strong transport connectivity to the north and south but challenging youth unemployment, we want to help show that world class businesses can launch from NSW Central Coast.
By leveraging our local Smart Work Hubs, technology and business ecosystems and incubation + acceleration partners, we've seen first hand the talent and opportunity that exists to take on new markets with innovative, targeted offerings and a supportive ecosystem.
Encouraged by the success of our first Startup Weekend event format, we're looking ahead to planning the next series of events for 2016. To stay in touch with us, just head to our Contact page.
