Global Hackathon

SPACECUBED HAS BEEN WORKING VERY HARD TO BUILD CONNECTIONS INTO ASIA. ONE OF THE KEY WAYS THEY SEE STARTUPS GROWING IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA IS BY HAVING A CORE UNDERSTANDING OF HIGH GROWTH SECTORS IN OUR REGION AND TO BE ABLE TO PURSUE THESE BIG CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES.

I was tempted not to post this and keep it to myself, this news is simply AMAZEBALLS!  I haven’t seen an opportunity like this since Barry left his wallet on the bar last week.  Read on about what Spacecubed and AppCenter have concocted, its just awesome, I suggest you apply now (so all my applications can sit on top of yours!).

To drive these connections forward we have been partnering with conferences, companies and organisations to provide these opportunities to our members.

AppCenterWe are very excited to announce we have partnered with AppCenter in Seoul, South Korea to deliver an exciting opportunity for two lucky Spacecubed members to attend the very first Global Hackathon, organised by AppCenter and SBS Foundation on May 19 – 23, all inclusive of flights, transportation, accommodation and food at event (all booked by Spacecubed).

Not only will the winners build a global network with developers from all over the world, mentors from 500startups, and international VC’s but they will have the amazing opportunity to represent Australia’s emerging startup sector to a global audience in South Korea!
