1. Showcase Tuesday (Call for Applications)


    Showcase Tuesday holds at 3:00pm on Tuesday every fortnight and provides an interactive platform for members of the tech community with a prototype or product to demo to a like-minded audience from our growing and diverse tech community.

    • Pain points that their solution addresses
    • Development Tools
    • Brief profile of their team
    • What the future holds

    We will also provide you with 15 minutes to engage the community in a Q& A session.

    Showcase Tuesday aims

    • To encourage doers to receive feedback from like-minded people from both a business and technology point of view
    • To provide a platform to look at your product/ solution through the eyes of other people
    • Help receive feedback that may be critical in the iteration of your prototype or solution as it finds or tweaks its best route to market
