How to attend

Grab a ticket here and then come along to the School of Architecture at 9am on June 24th. If you have a team, consider bringing a few people along so that you can soak up the wisdom as a group and work together throughout the day as required.

If you've got a startup on the simmer, or a startup idea that you want to explore, then this event is a fantastic opportunity to learn some new skills, validate your idea with your peers and expert startup mentors and meet some more great people from the startup community in Tasmania. We hope to see you there!

Mentor Development Event

Prior to the event announced here, there is going to be a Tasmanian startup mentor development event on the 23rd of June. Access to this event will be by invitation only, but if you would like to request an invitation, please email the president of Startup Tasmania, James Riggall, on to let him know that you'd like an invitation and why you'd like to attend this event. Emailing James won't guarantee you a seat, but it will ensure that your name is in the mix. If you've been selected to attend the event, you'll receive a formal invitation via email.

Innovation Hubs in Tasmania

This event forms part of the lead up to the opening of two innovation hubs in Tasmania (one in Hobart and one in Launceston). You can expect to see more of these sorts of events rolling out over the coming months. The Innovation Hubs project is being supported by the Coordinator General's Office in the Tasmanian State Government and a number of local and international partners. The project will result in the establishment of a new independent not for profit company that will run the two innovation centres in Tasmania. If you would like to learn more about this project and receive updates as the innovation hubs approach their launch dates, you can sign up for this mailing list.
