Hot DesQ Network Points are a proxy to measure your contribution to the Queensland startup ecosystem.
1000 Network Points are required to be earned over the 6 month duration of the program.
There are numerous activities that you can get involved in to earn your points. Activities range from engaging in social media, subscribing to industry newsletters, participating at a startup weekend, presenting at events, or delivering a lecture at a Queensland university. Different activities are worth different points. The point’s values reflect the effort and community value of the activity. So giving a lecture to students at University is worth more than blogging online.
You get to choose what you do, as long as you earn the minimum number of points per month (150) to stay on the program. Your Host will validate the activities for reporting.
You’ll be given the list of activities and the point’s values in your welcome pack when you arrive.
See the Hot DesQ Program Requirements for more information.
