This Thursday we are proud to support QUT's student start-up night!

Got a kickass idea that could make a great business? A uni assignment that has legs? Thinking about creating a start-up? Working on a start-up at the moment?

The QUT Leadership, Development & Innovation Program and Flagship Campus Life Program have joined forces to bring you the Brisbane Student Startup Night for students and young people from across Brisbane!

Network with industry and your entrepreneurial peers across a variety of disciplines as we judge the finalists of a startup pitching competition.

 

Students will pitch to a panel of student entrepreneurs while guests and other attendees enjoy light refreshments and live music on the Rooftop Garden Terrace in the Science and Engineering Centre (SEC). The Top 10 will then pitch to the entire audience in the final round held in The Atrium, SEC.
