Calling all hackers, hustlers and hipsters! 

Do you have a bright idea that could disrupt an industry? Know how to turn problems into solutions? Think you have what it takes to launch a business idea in a weekend? Then, listen up. QUT Creative Enterprise Australia will be hosting Australia’s first ever Startup Weekend for creative tech!

Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where hackers, hustlers and hipsters from creative and tech come together to make their business idea a reality. It's a high energy weekend, where you'll be able to meet new people, pitch an idea or join a team, and launch a business, all in one weekend!

Join forces with other developers, designers, entrepreneurs and technologists to build real solutions to the world's most pressing problems in just one crazy weekend and get a taste of what it's like to be an entrepreneur! Fuelled by knowledge, passion, enthusiasm (and some great food and drink!), it’s a fantastic way to make great ideas happen.

What is creative tech?

Creative tech combines technology, psychology, art and design to help create more immersive, entertaining, personalised, multi-sensory experiences. This connects the physical and digital world in completely new ways by creating immersive and integrated experiences that are changing and disrupting the way people interact.

Examples of creative tech include multi-sensory experiences made using computer graphics, new media art, virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D printing, the Internet of Things and wearable technology.

Is my idea or solution relevant to creative tech?

We encourage cross cutting ideas across a wide range of areas including art, fashion, screen, advertising, product design, digital media, multimedia, games, computing, robotics, engineering and electronics.

This Startup Weekend is designed to collide new ways of combining creative and technical skills to create cross-disciplinary business ideas in a fun and interactive way.

Different examples of creative tech companies include Shoes of Prey, Metaverse Makeovers, Shapeways, Holition, Ringly, Oculus Rift and many others.
