If you’re interested in startups in health, then it looks like you might want to be in Brisbane this weekend. Up to 100 health entrepreneurs will spend 54 hours formulating and pitching a new health-related business at a Startup Weekend for Health. The event is not for profit and organised by volunteers who have backgrounds in startups and in health industries. (See here for a full list of organisers). *** Maryam Jarahi, from MEDAXS, explains more: Q: What is a Startup Weekend for Health?Startup Weekends are designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non- technical entrepreneurs. They are a global phenomenon that has seen over 1,000 events held in over 150 cities worldwide, see here. The weekend events are centred on action, innovation, and education. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through testing, business model development, and basic concept creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos to a panel of entrepreneurs and health experts. Participants are challenged with building functional startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.
