Event Description

Full Description:
This October, The University of Queensland will be hosting the inaugural UQ Weekend of Start-Ups.

Over 54 hours, 100 UQ students, alumni and interested members of the community will formulate an idea, form teams, validate and build a business, and pitch to judges.

This event aims to bring together start-up enthusiasts with different skill-sets in the same room and facilitate their pitching an idea for a new start-up to creating a prototype or working demo in teams of 3-5 members.

The weekend will provide a platform for entrepreneurs, experts and builders to come together and create a final product, present their product to industry judges and investors, and test potential real world applicability.

This is Queensland’s signature event focused on “Student life”. It will be hosted at UQ St Lucia campus in the Advanced Engineering Building, UQ’s newest iconic building in St Lucia Campus.

The UQ Weekend of Start-Ups is not-for-profit and volunteer-run by UQ students and staff, and the entrepreneurial community.
