Announcing Upstarta Camp – Brisbane Tue 24 Nov 2009

When: Tuesday 24 November (afternoon before first OSDC day), 12pm-5pm
Where: Brisbane, Mt Coot-Tha / Bardon area (near OSDC venue)

What is it? A picnic in the park. Yes, literally! It’s a workshop, but we’re doing a barbecue beforehand. The afternoon (including the barbecue) is $10 for members, $20 for non-members. We haven’t set a firm cap on numbers but we will have to limit it somewhat.

After a joint introduction to get everybody tuned in, we’ll split the attendees into smaller groups, each utilising the Upstarta principles and related strategies to accomplish tasks.
Among other things, we’re going to develop (fictitious but potentially viable) complete products/services including surrounding aspects such as business model, market positioning, pricing, distribution, marketing, etc. Then we’ll recombine, present and discuss what each group came up with.
It’ll be educational, challenging, and fun!

For more info and registration, go to the Upstarta Camp page.

It’s the day before the Open Source Developers’ Conference starts at the nearby Bardon Centre, so if you’re travelling to the conference you have an opportunity to join the Upstarta Camp also. Simply pick a flight earlier in the day!

It’s separate events, but you will want to (also) get to OSDC, earlybird registration ends this week!
