Tackling today's most pressing movement challenges calls for the combined efforts of Brisbane's most creative and innovative thinkers (that's you!). That's why we're hosting this year's BAC HACKATHON: to cultivate the solutions we need.
Over two days, teams will have the opportunity to bring an idea or solution to life with the help of some of the most passionate and accomplished minds. Furthermore, challengers have the opportunity to solve problems set by the hosts to win prizes.
Little Tokyo Two started as a place where a group of friends could get together, do business and drink beers. From December 2015 until now Little Tokyo Two has been one of the largest and most dynamic communities of entrepreneurs, innovators and creators in South East Queensland.
With four locations across South East Queensland: Spring Hill, Petrie Terrace, Springfield and The Capital in Brisbane's CBD. Little Tokyo Two's goal is to continue to grow this support system so keep a look out for new spaces opening in Brisbane and other strategic locations across Queensland.
