Got an amazingly creative idea or a ridiculous problem?

Help young entrepreneurs on the Sunshine Coast launch a startup with the first of three events by pitching an idea or pitching a problem. Anyone is welcomed to Pitch an Idea or Pitch a Problem at the launch party for the Young Starters Pitch Comp during the Sunshine Coast Startup Week.

Young People aged 16 - 24 will form teams around the best ideas to kick-off the Young Starters Pitch Comp during the Sunshine Coast Startup Week.

Innovate Noosa hosts the first of three events with the Pitch vs Problem Launch Party during Sunshine Coast Startup Week. This event will give participants and the general public the opportunity to pitch their ideas or pitch a problem they face.

What to expect

Pitcher’s will have 1 minutes to present either

  1. A problem they have and need a solution to solve it
  2. A solution they’ve found and need a team to develop it

Participants will then vote on and form groups around the best ideas. The teams will take the chosen ideas into the one day workshop to develop and then pitch to a panel of expert entrepreneurs and angel investors for the opportunity to win amazing prizes.

Anyone can present their idea or problem. The following workshop and pitch comp is only open to young people aged 16 - 24 who can register on the night.
