POST EVENT EDIT: Our hunch worked! Our feeling that the ideas and entrepreneurs across our communities were impatient to be brought together and unleashed proved right- the Top End Ideas Fest’s immediate legacy was a step up and outpouring of action. Designed like a start up weekend, but condensed into one intensive day the Ideas Fest was an exhilarating whirlwind on the 22nd of April 2017 at CDU Darwin Waterfront. Teams formed in the morning, then worked on creating ideas or tackling problems to come up with innovative solutions. Each team could draw on support along the way from mentors/ coaches / resource people galore. In the late afternoon each team pitched their concept to a judging panel, trumpets sounded, prizes were given… and then there was the after party!
We’re cooking up more spicy events right now…
