Start-Up Camp helps Canberra find its inner entrepreneur

Start-Up Camp Canberra is an event that celebrates creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial thinking.

Run over the course of a single weekend, individuals come together to form teams, work to come up with an idea for a web-enabled business and then pitch their concept to a panel of judges.

The purpose of Start-Up Camp is to encourage entrepreneurial thinking no matter whether you are young or old, already involved in a start-up or simply an ‘ideas person’. Start-Up Camp is open to anyone over the age of 16 years who is interested in innovation, creativity and problem solving.

Last year’s attendees had this to say about start-up camp:

“This one night, two-day crash-course in entrepreneurship gave me an amazing insight into the world of development: the importance of knowing your customer, and how much we need a network of people to compliment our own skills & interests. I strongly recommend attending events like this one if you have ideas, and want to bring them to life!” Pirra

“The weekend showed me that if you are among the right people and focus on an idea, implementing it does not seem as challenging as it would when you are trying to tackle the idea on your own. It also definitely gave me a better understanding on where to start working on start-up ideas.” Sajj

“I registered for Start-Up Camp Canberra because I was interested in seeing “behind the scenes” of what goes into planning and starting a business. Although I have a business I run from home, being a mum with two young children means that I normally mainly meet other mums. I was keen to network amongst a completely different crowd of people and move the “grey matter” out of the playroom and into the boardroom.” Suzanne

Start-Up Camp Canberra will be held 25 - 27 July 2014 at the ANU College of Business and Economics.
