// The wonderful biannual whirlwind that is Startup Weekend is back for its 14th iteration in 7 years. Get your discounted tickets here…
You can probably chart the modern day beginnings of the local tech startup scene to the first ever Startup Weekend down at Spacecubed – as it was known then – in September 2012.
The mining construction boom was coming off the boil, and some 100 plucky startuppy people met for the first ever Perth-based weekend of frenzied coding, designing and pitching.
That first Startup Weekend was an amazing success, and the event has returned to Perth twice a year since.
Come learn what it’s like to be in a startup, for a crazy condensed 54 hours. Have an idea? Want to be part of a team? Smash out some code, design a new company logo, present to the judges on Sunday, get little sleep, laugh til you are tired, bang the table, and do it all over again 5 minutes later?
Startup Weekend’s for you.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and teams organically form around the top ideas. All ideas, applications and platforms are welcome – remember that the sky is the limit!
Anyone can attend. Whether you’re 18 or 88, a painter, actor, software engineer, writer, graphic designer, geek, entrepreneur, photographer, musician, programmer, museum curator, or startup specialist. Whether you have an idea, or have no idea. Everyone is welcome.
Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered citizens who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures or products. Whether participants found companies, find a co-founder, meet someone new, find a creative collaborator, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to have a heap of fun, and to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
