Startup Weekend x Global Goals Jam
// // Grab the promo code for an unbelievable ticket price of $25 for the whole weekend event...

Come and participate in Spacecubed’s very first Startup Weekend x Global Goals Jam crossover event!

In just 54-hours, co-create solutions in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment that challenges everyone who attends to fall in love with the problem and design for 2030.

FLASH SALE! Use promo code FLASHSALE for tickets at just $25 (rather than $40), for the whole weekend.

For just $25, you can access 54-hours of mentoring, food & drinks, sprint sessions, keynote discussions, celebration drinks and more. That’s all your meals over the weekend included!

Moreover, over the weekend, you’ll contribute to the development of short-term interventions with long-term impact for one of the biggest challenges of this decade – climate change. But, because climate change is truly a wicked problem with an interconnected nature, the focus will be on a smaller focus area: Regenerative Cities. 

The task of participants will be in translating the global themes, Sustainable Cities & Communities [SDG11], Responsible Consumption & Production [SDG12] and Climate Action [SDG13], to our local context. Teams will be formed, prizes will be awarded and long-term impact will be had.

“We’re excited to bring these two great events together, for one massive weekend of fun,” said Amilia Bakhtiar, Project Lead. “We’ve had a great response so far from previous attendees, and so we thought, why not bring everyone together and create real, tangible change?”

Kicking off on Friday the 26th of November, industry experts and leaders will join in to provide critical context around the problems participants will be solving. Experts and mentors will host Sprint Sessions where participants can get first-hand support and assistance.

Then on Sunday, discover how to Communicate your Problem in the morning, before learning how to Pitch Your Solution in the afternoon. Following all of these Sprint Sessions, get ready to pitch to the audience, enjoy a drink or two and celebrate. 

Western Power are on board as a sponsor for this event, joining current partners Murdoch University and Spacecubed, and supporters at City of Perth.

Ready to get started? Grab your ticket here before they’re all scooped up, tell your friends, bring your colleagues and come along to the very first Startup Weekend x Global Goals Jam! Don’t forget the promo code FLASHSALE.

About the Global Goals Jam

The Global Goals Jam was founded by Marco van Hout and Gijs Gootjes of Digital Society School (DSS), Boaz Paldi, Simon van Woerden and Hana Omar of UNDP and has been further developed and coordinated by Anneke van Woerden (DSS). In the first edition in 2016, 17 cities participated, in 2017 45 cities, in 2018 75 cities, and this year we are moving to over 85 participating cities. Thousands of change-makers have used our methodology and are now part of this growing learning community around the SDGs, ready to design 2030 now.

More than an event, it is a network of cities and organisations that are excited to engage their local communities to create real impact for the Global Goals.

About Startup Weekend Perth

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 cofounder, 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. Startup Weekend came to Perth in September 2012, and there have 16 other Startup Weekends since
