Weekends at Fishburners: Female Founders Hackathon

  • Fishburners 608 Harris Street Ultimo, NSW, 2007 Australia (map)

Are you an aspiring female startup founder?

Do you want to spend a weekend surrounded by similarly-minded people like yourself, receiving guidance on how to take your first steps?

Then the first edition of our Weekends at Fishburners series is designed for you.

Weekends at Fishburners are a series of hackathon-style events, which aim to help different groups of aspiring startup founders take their first steps. You'll be surrounded by similarly-minded people, making connections, receiving mentorship, and being guided through a carefully planned schedule to refine and test your business ideas.

Our first event is targeting female founders exclusively. Future weekends we're planning will target experienced professionals looking for a career change, aspiring startup founders from regional locations, and many other potential founder types.

According to Startup Muster, 12% of Australia's startups were started at a hackathon, and as a not-for-profit charity dedicated to creating new startups, Fishburners aims to provide a safe, fun, educational and productive weekend for everyone involved, completely free of charge or obligations.


The event starts Friday 22nd July at 6:30pm and concludes Sunday 24th July 2016 at 6:00pm with participants learning how to use tools such as the business model canvas, customer discovery and how to create a minimum viable product to test their market.
