Set over three days, the inspirational event allows participants to experience the ‘start-up’ life, where they can connect with creators, learn from the best, improve their knowledge and work through the process of taking any idea from concept to creation in a matter of days.
The Generator Bundaberg executive manager Brooke Fossey said Startup Weekend Bundaberg was about bringing together a range of different people that could help encourage and inspire one another to make their ideas a reality.
“This event is for aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs, as well as passionate dreamers, problem solvers, techies and creatives,” Ms Fossey said.
“We are also encouraging university and high-school students to get involved – anyone that is looking at creating a business who would like to connect with the right people and the right resources.”

“Mr U’Ren is a nationally recognised entrepreneurship educator, which is an amazing resource for regional businesses,” Mr Tracey said.
“He will be supported by a range of local mentors from diverse industries who have all trod this path before and have valuable insights and experience to give.
“Best of all participants get actual hands-on experience in the steps needs to get a business off the ground – this isn’t a lecture or conference.”
Participants are able to pitch their own business ideas, or join the team of a winning pitch, which will be worked on in small groups over the course of the weekend.
