Share your idea, build your team and get to work: life is short, so why wasting time? Give all you’ve got and create a new business from scratch in a weekend. In a unique atmosphere, people from various backgrounds come together and develop early business concepts.
Mentors with proven experience in start-ups will guide you with first-hand tips on how to make a successful business. By Sunday, you’ll have the foundations for a functional start-up: the projects developed during the weekend will be evaluated by a panel of judges.
You can either pitch your own business idea or help a presenter develop their idea. From business guy to programmer to designer – everyone is welcome!
Important note: We are hosting the pre-pitch day on the 14th of June 2012 for all those who want to present their project. At the pre-pitch day all presenters receive feedback on their idea and their presentation technique. These steps make it easier for us to handpick the lucky bastards who are going to pitch at the Live Event.PHOTO GALLERY
