This is a special open day for Melbourne Knowledge Week (MKW) 2016 – Jointly hosted by Melbourne Silicon Beach and our education partner, Collective Campus.
It is a requirement of City of Melbourne that all MKW attendees book via the respective Eventbrite pages setup for each event. This event is bound to sell out.
The open session at Collective Campus will consist of panel discussions, workshops, Exhibits and demonstrations. The day is structured for people new to the startup community or curious about what’s happening in the startup world. So bring your friends. Come and meet the people who make up the startup eco-system in Melbourne and get to know what motivates them.
Learn to adopt modern tools and methodologies to stay competitive. Discussions will focus on 3D printing, robotics, bitcoin, Internet of Things (IoT) and other disruptive technologies that drive our city to be the world’s #MostLiveableStartupCity
