There’s lot’s of talk about innovation AND lot’s of confusion about what to actually do. That confusion will be demystified over one weekend where business owners (and some of their team) are partnered up with IT professionals, programmers, designers, business development specialists, under the guidance of innovation specialists.

Teams will work on addressing key challenges, developing ideas and opportunities put forward by business owners. For business owners this is an excellent opportunity to spend one weekend immersed in addressing core issues or key opportunities related to your business/industry, with an innovation team, whilst learning a process for effective innovation.

For programmers, designers, business development professionals and everyone else… this is an opportunity to be part of an innovation team, showcase your talents to leading business owners / leaders in the community and meet other like minded people.

Your weekend includes:

  • Pre-event briefing to ensure that businesses have their idea/ problem clearly defined (business owners only) Pitch night Friday night. Key challenges / ideas proposed by the business owners will be anonymously pitched to recruit participants (programmers, designers, etc) to be part of their innovation team to develop that idea over the weekend
  • Short, entertaining, educational sessions on launching ideas, innovation, the Internet of Things, Law/IP protection, accounting and more, will be provided Mentors will be available throughout the weekend to support teams
  • All meals, tea & coffee Drinks Friday and Sunday evening
  • A whole weekend of intense innovation for business growth and team development
  • Round up of ideas and progress at the end of the weekend with guidance for businesses on next steps
