Come learn the basics of founding & launching a successful education startup while solving real problems in education. These groups are in the best position to both name and design the solutions for education’s most critical challenges. Our event transcends the traditional Startup Weekend style; we will focus on bridging the entrepreneurial startup spirit with technology experts and educators informed issues. Through design thinking, innovative business strategies, relentless hacking and designing, this weekend will produce new ventures that are poised to create high caliber outcomes for the Darling Downs & SW Qld students and schools.

Groups will work together over 54 hours to create innovation that addresses a concern either in a school or in a student’s community.

Ventures can range from a mobile app for students, a gaming console app, to a variety of online learning tools or simply a new course or educational service, back of house program, software as a service, education in the cloud ideas etc! We believe that a wide range of diverse perspectives, backgrounds, passion, talents, technical knowledge and skills are needed to create ventures that have the highest potential for lasting impact.
