Introducing the first Melbourne Startup Weekend RetailTech to the Australian startup ecosystem. Take the chance to pitch your idea or be a part of a team to create real innovative projects geared towards the retail industry.  Startup Weekend is a 54-hour competition designed to provide an amazing experiential learning opportunity for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. The weekend event is centred on ACTION, INNOVATION, and EDUCATION.  

It all begins on the Friday night where you, as a participant will get to pitch your idea or listen to others ideas. From there, teams are formed organically and what follows is a weekend where you and your team continue through testing, business model development, and basic prototype creation.

The outcome of the weekend is to develop an entrepreneurial style idea whether it is developing the prototype of a software product (such as a mobile app), a physical product or invention.

Startup Weekend will culminate on Sunday night with demo presentations to a panel of potential investors, local entrepreneurs, and industry experts. Participants are challenged to build functional startups in interdisciplinary teams during the event and will be encouraged to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.
