EnergyLab Brisbane CleanTech Hackathon

February 3 @ 10:00 am - February 4 @ 2:00 pm


The way we power our cities, move people around, and produce goods and services is changing. Increasingly, we’re electrifying our transport, reducing the resource intensity of industry, and producing energy from renewable sources.

At the heart of this transition are cleantech entrepreneurs building profitable businesses that improve lives while reducing our environmental footprint. If you’re interested in joining this growing group, then we hope you’ll come along to EnergyLab’s CleanTech Hackathon!

This event is designed to bring people interested in cleantech startups together to brainstorm, develop and demonstrate new business concepts. Over the course of a weekend we’ll help you find teammates (if you don’t have a team already), come up with a cleantech startup idea, and refine it ready to present to a panel of judges. The winning team will receive a support package to help them make their ideas a reality.

How it works

Inspiration: We’ll kick off with a couple quick presentations about problems you might consider solving.
Team forming: You can register as a team if you want, but if you’re missing a team member or registering as an individual then we’ll help you find teammates.
Ideation: Once teams are formed the brainstorming begins! Come up with a bunch of ideas and pick the one you want to work on for the rest of the hackathon.
Developing: We’ll leave lots of time for you to develop your ideas, build a prototype if possible, and prepare your presentation.
Presenting: Each team will present to a panel of judges, who will pick the winning teams.
Celebrating: Unwind and celebrate what you’ve achieved in less than 24hrs over a drink and something to eat.
