In the dead of the night, the city skyline is punctuated with lit windows. We like to think they’re
people sitting in their apartments working on their side project or big idea. When everyone you know is in bed, you’re hunched over your laptop. There are too few hours in the day and too many things you want to do. Sound like you? Join us!
When: Tuesday 01 Nov 11 at 6:00:00 PM
Where: Camberwell, Vic (Please contact andyg (geekscape) http://bit.ly/evIkBVor DM @geekscape)

Startup Weekend is a non-profit, community-building event that brings together entrepreneurs of all backgrounds including software developers, marketers, designers, and other enthusiasts to start companies in just 54 hours. The participants that attend have 60 seconds to make a pitch (optional), the pitches are whittled down to the top ideas, and then teams form around the ideas to come out with several developed companies or projects. Finally, the weekend culminates with demonstrations in front of an audience of judges and potential investors.
