Calling All Young Entrepreneurs Startup Weekend invites budding entrepreneurs in years 10-12, to take an idea from nothing to something, pitch to prototype, in just 3 days. You don't have to have technical skills or have discovered your talent yet. Any student interested in startups, launching a business, entrepreneurship, or creative problem solving is encouraged to register.

Startup Weekend will propel students to launch creative business ideas by practicing the "Lean Startup" process. Students will pitch ideas, form teams around the top ideas, conduct customer research, and work intensely to build a prototype that illustrates the potential of their business.

Startup Weekend culminates in a Shark Tank style pitch competition where teams present their business and demonstrate their prototype to a panel of local entrepreneurs. Little Talk, All Action! Startup Weekend demands teamwork, creativity, determination, and focus from all participants!

While each team will have access to an adult coach, every team will be expected to manage itself in order to optimize time. The Global Startup Weekend Movement Powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of passionate entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower communities to launch life changing ideas.

It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs in the world, having hosted 2000+ events in 200+ countries since 2007. Prizes and Internships Some cool prizes are on offer this year, including a 1 hour mentoring session with Shark Tank Australia's Steve Baxter!

Some students will also be offered an optional holiday internship with a local business.
