Startup Sprint

A three-hour Startup Sprint happened in the Makerspace on 20 April 2016 facilitated by Startup Toowoomba. Students took advantage of the opportunity and discovered their Entrepreneurial character as either a Hipster, Hacker or Hustler. They  worked in teams of three (with one of each character in it) to develop a solution to a problem, that has a sustainable business model.

After discussing working out a solution, they had to test it and ask for feedback from USQ staff and students on campus and then make adjustments from their comments. When the time was up the groups presented a 3 minute pitch of their idea and solution to a panel of judges.

It was a fun morning with lots of lively discussion.
