Developers. Designers. Marketers. Business Folk. This is a call for you to get your idea off the ground.

Startup Weekend is your chance to collaborate and get involved with a group of motivated individuals hell-bent on disrupting their industry of choice.

What can you expect?

Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea. Teams organically form around the top ideas (determined by popular vote). Then, it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation.

The weekend wraps up with teams presenting their startup to local entrepreneurial leaders with an opportunity for critical feedback.

What are you waiting for?

Found a company, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside your usual 9-to-5. You are guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.

About Startup Weekend

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 123,000 people like you having taken part in more than 1500 startup weekends in 726 cities with in excess of 13,000 startups created as a result!

The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organisers and facilitators can be found around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil.

Clean Green and Whangarei

We are dedicated to making this Startup weekend a green event - being "Sustainable, Zero Waste" and championing local producers and suppliers wherever possible. We are the first startup weekend to commit to being green - but we hope other events will follow our lead.
