Three Teams, Three Startups, One Weekend

October 5th, 2008 (Melbourne, Australia) –

Just how easy is it to launch a company? How about three? Right now, teams from Startup Camp Melbourne are in the middle of creating three real-life business ventures in just 48 hours. Join us at 12pm (noon) tomorrow (AEST) for the webcast launch:

With zero budget and no preparation, twenty like-minded strangers have set themselves the challenge of going from conception to production in a single weekend. From veteran entrepreneurs to cubicle-dwellers, coders to marketers, this new breed of Australian innovators are showing the world that starting a company is easier now than ever before.

Tomorrow, the brand new businesses marketbeagle, bitofpluck and iSportster will launch live to the public. What are they?

• tracks success in marketing campaigns through easy-to-use data capture and analysis tools. marketbeagle are committed to helping businesses achieve their goals through giving them a better understanding of where their marketing budget is going and how hard it's working for them.

• is a web and mobile service that connects users with people they would never otherwise meet, wherever they are. Using sophisticated matching technology, bitofpluck connects people immediately in the same location for a an interesting conversation or a moment of inspiration.
