I am noticing a growing trend in the number of startups in Perth! And not to be outdone by other cities – it seems that every time we run events elsewhere, it is the Perth contingents job to ensure that we know that it’s their turn to host an event next!! clip_image002

I am very happy to announce that that time has now arrived! J

BizSpark Azure Startup Camp is coming to Perth!

The event is focused on Microsoft’s Cloud offering Azure and in a moment of planning excellence the event is taking advantage of the fact that the Azure Discovery Roadshow hits Perth the same weekend! So not only can you attend the deep dive technical day that explains the underlying technical aspects & business value of Azure – you also then get the following 2 day weekend to use the newly acquired skills to build an application!

So if you have any interest in finding out more about the Cloud offerings and its ultimate potential to fast track business growth – you need to attend this weekend!

You also have the benefit of learning from Technical and Business Experts while networking with other Entrepreneurs. At the end of the weekend, you will have the opportunity to present your business idea to Investors and Venture Capitalists.

Microsoft BizSpark Start Up Camps give you a chance to get hands on training by attending a Skills Ramp Up Pre Day , then use your new skills to build an application – over a Weekend at the Start Up Camp! With help on hand and the technical skills you learn, you can take your idea to a functioning proof of concept or even fully functioning application in just a few days!

We ran an Azure Start Up Camp in Sydney earlier this year and all involved found attending the event invaluable! You can read more about it here:
