Hello and welcome to QUT Starters! First and foremost, thank you to those who have shown interest our group, either by attending our events, liking our Facebook page, signed up as a member and of course, reading this. Our vision is to grow a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation at QUT. We are focussed on the lean start up methodology of testing your idea by releasing the idea, gaining feedback from potential consumers and using pivots to reassess your idea. We started in the second half of 2014, holding one workshop and one speaker event. This year in 2015, we aim to have a series of workshops where you will be able to learn and apply practical steps in validating an idea into a potential business. We will keep you updated on workshop topics, time and location in upcoming posts. This past week, we held our first O-Week stall at Gardens Point on the Lady Bowen Lawn. Here are a few snaps from the three days we were on campus. A big shout out to Jeremy Varendorff and Tim Mardon for creating the fortune wheel and life size photo frame from scratch!
