Welcome back to another year of


There’s never been a better time for great ideas

It’s back and bigger than ever. After last year’s success, Brainbox 2 is ready to launch new ideas into the world again. Now’s your chance to turn those thought starters into a reality.


What’s in it for me?

  • 1. Brainbox Workshops

    Learn the basics and set the foundations for a winning idea. From defining problems to creative thinking and business models, the workshop will make sure you’re well-equipped for your 90 second pitch. You can sign up here.

  • 2. Finalist Bootcamp

    The top eight workshop finalists will be invited to attend a Brainbox Bootcamp. As one of the lucky ones, you’ll be mentored and coached through a series of workshops to perfect your 90 second pitch for Pitch Night.

  • 3. Judges’ Choice Award

    As the overall winner, you’ll receive $100,000 to bring your idea to life. You’ll also get one day a week for six months to work on your project. Once it’s off the ground, you’ll also receive a percentage of your business’s revenue from day one.

  • 4. People’s Choice Award

    You could also score two tickets to SXSW in Austin, Texas. With flights and accommodation included, you’ll enjoy a week of innovation, music, film and art.
