Startup Spring has officially sprung and is looking to break last year’s record number of events nationally


StartupAUS today announced the return of Startup Spring for the third year running taking place across Australia from 10-30 September, with the aim to top last year’s record number of 160 events nationally.

Startup Spring is a three-week long, Australia-wide festival of events and activities to celebrate and promote the startup community and to encourage more Australians to get involved and excited about entrepreneurs and technology.

StartupAUS is a not-for-profit entity with a mission to transform Australia through technology entrepreneurship and the belief that a strong home-grown tech sector is vital to future Australian jobs and wealth.

What does Startup Spring have offer?

Newly appointed StartupAUS CEO, Peter Bradd (pictured), said: “Startup Spring is designed to encourage and inspire all young and passionate tech entrepreneurs at a grassroots level nationwide.

“It is imperative that we celebrate and promote the tech startup community and as the festival grows every year, we are confident that tech entrepreneurialism is key to Australia’s future.

“We want to encourage and inspire the different parts of the Australian startup ecosystem, including entrepreneurs, corporates, universities and all levels of government, to develop and implement policies and programs so our vibrant technology sector can drive economic prosperity for generations to come,”

“Whether you’re an experienced entrepreneur or the average Joe that has an interest in tech, we are welcoming everybody to participate. From coding sessions and bootcamps, to awards and networking drinks, Startup Spring has events that suit everyone.”
