Event Details

Social Innovation Sydney BarCamps are a great way for people to meet and build relationships with other change makers. However, the conversations that happen at the Social Innovation BarCamps don’t always turn into concrete action.

This dilemma of how to turn interesting ideas, a network of change makers, and some remarkable conversations into real projects has been one that we have been pondering for a while.

We think that the answer is a Social Innovation Startup Camp. And we’re holding our first one in May 2011. So block out 7th & 8th of May for our first Social Innovation Startup Camp.

A Startup Camp is a face-to-face, collaborative event dedicated to bringing social entrepreneurs, technologists, business strategists, and other people who want to make things happen together. The purpose is to share advice and information about getting an idea up and running.

What can you expect at the Social Innovation Startup Camp?

You’ll learn the essential skills for taking your idea from concept through to the point where you can explain it effectively to collaborators, the media, funders and investors. Over two days we’ll have experts share the essential concepts and skills you need to bring your idea to life. For example:

  • Refining your social innovation idea
  • Defining your social business strategy
  • Developing a business plan
  • Pitching your idea to other people (like potential investors or collaborators)
  • Technology for your social innovation idea
  • How to use social media and social networking to help
  • Presentation skills

What outcomes can you expect from Social Innovation Startup Camp?

  • The chance to workshop your idea and refine it collaboratively
  • Practice presenting your idea to groups of people
  • Develop your own workbook to document ideas from the workshops

The main goal is to learn from each others experience and to get a chance to work with a new group of people and, of course, to have a lot of fun.

It is amazing what you can achieve in the space of 2 days and how much knowledge that you can take away.
