The Startup Weekend organisers are a team of inviting energetic, entrepreneurially-minded hackers, hustlers and designers. Join the team for the pre-event at The Post Office, Ocean Street, Maroochydore on Wednesday 22 April at 5.30 – 9pm.
This free event, with a cash bar will give participants the opportunity to learn more about the event.
The friendly team of organisers will be on hand to answer questions such as; What is Startup Weekend? How does it work? What can I expect?
Dr Retha Scheepers, lead organiser and entrepreneurship lecturer in the Business School at USC, believes that attending the pre-event is extremely valuable for all participants.  
"You will learn more about the event, meet and network with other passionate, enthusiastic and talented individuals like yourself. Meeting people at the pre-event takes a lot of anxiety out of Startup Weekend, since you run into the same people again," Dr Scheepers said.
The event will aim to break down the barriers and allow for participants to engage with coaches, experienced entrepreneurs and past participants.
"We'll play a pitching game and exchange creative ideas over some drinks. You'll be in a room with 80-100 high-energy entrepreneurial people, so you might be talking to your future co-founders, developers and designers," Dr Scheepers said.
Startup Weekend Sunshine Coast will be held at the University of the Sunshine Coast on May 8-10. Last year, 70% of tickets sold after the pre-event.
Early bird ticketing have already gone on sale. Pre-event attendees will also receive a discount code to purchase their Startup Weekend tickets.
