As we’ve continued to develop and grow during 2013, we’ve learned a lot and nurtured many ideas about how to become a long-term, scalable and sustainable enterprise.
Over the coming months we will be taking another step in that direction as we transition away from our existing model and make our biggest leap of change yet.
SS48 will continue to be the same great weekend of great ideas and brilliant people, but there will be a fresh business model under the bonnet, a whole new look, and we’ll be visiting some new cities too.
We can’t go into too much more detail, so if you want to stay up to date with the changes then be sure to sign up to our mailing list.

Wow! We can’t believe it’s already the end of September.
Apologies for those of you who have been waiting for an update from us, we know we haven’t been so sharp on keeping an active blog but we’ve been very busy lately! Aside from the traveling, moving houses and other big life changes happening in the team, we’ve been hard at work planning the future stages of SS48 and we’re really looking forward to sharing it with you.
This is really just a quick post to let you know what we’ve got lined up in the weeks to follow:
- a full wrap-up of the hugely successful SS48 Melbourne weekend
- announcement of next steps for SS48 (and the next city!)
- interview with former NFL player and founder of Team Gleason, Steve Gleason

Melbournians. You love the rain, and you love the footy. You love fashion and you love your coffee.
We hear you also love to do a lot of good.
Social Startup 48 is an event where incredible people come together to build startup organisations that create social impact.
In 48 hours.
(It’s really exciting.)
And after an amazingly successful pilot in Sydney, it’s coming to Melbourne on August 31st – September 2nd, 2012.
Join our mailing list, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and stay tuned to our website to make sure you don’t miss out on your opportunity to shake things up in Melbourne (we think you can do better than the ‘worst earthquake in decades’).
Applications will be opening soon.
Good morning everyone at SS48 Sydney!
It’s Day 3, the final day of Social Startup 48 weekend.
Energy levels are high and the urgency is building as the 6:30 pitch deadline looms–only 7 hours away now!
Tom Dawkins from Start Some Good gave an immensely useful talk last night on Crowdfunding–or should we say, Peerfunding. Check out his words here:
A few teams kicked on late last night at Vibewire working space. With a bit more pizza for breakfast this morning as fuel for the day, we’re excited to see what tonight will bring!
Feel free to come by tonight at 6:30pm to 10-14 Kensington St, Chippendale to watch the final pitches!
Well, Day 2 of SS48 Sydney is well-underway here at Queen St. Studios! Last night was a great start to the weekend, with fantastic mentors, inspirational speeches, and a wonderful asset mapping activity hosted by Donny Maclurcan.
Creel Price’s keynote speech was definitely a highlight of the evening. You can check out his entire talk here on the SS48 Youtube channel, as well as videos from the night of the initial pitches and a few words from the SS48 organisers:
Paul Telling, one of the talented SS48 Sydney participants, has been drawing visual roadmaps of speaker talks. Check out his own inspired version of Creel Price’s speech below:
Today’s schedule involves the teams fleshing out their ideas, working on their business plans, getting social media campaigns up and running, cementing business names, and working on crowdsourcing funding. There’s a ton to do and the clock is ticking!
