Startup Slam 2019 Call for Speakers

Startup Slam 2019 Call for Speakers

 

Dyspatch created Startup Slam to showcase Victoria’s burgeoning tech sector and provide insightful and informative workshops to students and professionals. In 2014, 60 attendees joined us for the first Startup Slam. Last year, over 400 students, developers, and entrepreneurs came together to share ideas, knowledge, and expertise.

Workshops will be offered on startup engineering, early stage entrepreneurship, and product validation and design.
