Interested In Startups? Check Out Leicester Launch48 Weekend 2013

by Tara

For anyone interested in being part of a new startup and meeting interesting people this sounds like a great idea especially if you are anywhere near Leicester UK.I’d go if I hadn’t already got something on that weekend.

What is Launch 48?

From the website:

The Launch48 weekend is a unique experience for building web startups with a group of teams from a range of backgrounds and different sets of skills.

For each team, the goal is simple: pitch, build and launch a startup in 48 hours.

The Launch48 weekend is different from most hackathon’s and entrepreneurial events because:

  1. We focus on the business and ensuring you understand your customers. Check out the agenda for more information.
  2. We have a great set of mentors that work with groups to develop their business
  3. Each team has about 10 people working on each idea from a broad range of backgrounds
  4. We don’t allow pre-existing teams.
  5. Participants meet, learn from, and work with many people throughout the event
  6. All aspects of a business are covered including planning, marketing, PR, branding, design, finance, and development

When: Friday 6th September to Sunday 8th September 2013.
Where: LCB Depot, 31 Rutland Street, Leicester LE1 1RE (see directions)
