Startup Weekend Sheffield
November 20th, 2015
Guess what! The next Startup Weekend Sheffield is just around the corner and we have a couple of awesome announcements to make. Here goes…
- Ticket prices set at just £35! That’s right, this isn’t just the Early Bird rate. This is the only rate going. Due to us raising sponsorship early this year, we’re able to offer tickets at this extremely discounted price. That’s a fantastic weekend-long event with seven meals, access to expert coaches and mentors, the chance to win great prizes and entry into the Global Startup Battle for just £35. Bargain by anyone’s standards. Get your £35 ticket now!
- Global Startup Battle bigger and better than ever! Did someone say Global Startup Battle? Yup. Over 250 Startup Weekends will be taking place during Global Entrepreneurship Week and the best teams from each of these events will get the opportunity to battle each other on a Global Stage for the chance to win awesome prizes. These are yet to be announced but previous prizes have included free trips to Silicon Valley, New York, mentoring from Google and more… Check out this year’s Global Startup Battle cities
- Startup Weekend set to be ‘Electric’ in November For the first time ever, we’re moving out of the Enterprise Zone and into the Electric Works for the entire weekend. As well as just being a really cool, creative environment to hang out and work in for 54 hours, it is THE place to be for creative and digital companies in Sheffield… and it has a helter skelter. And yes, we’ve organised it so you can have a go :p Check out the Electric Works and its indoor helter skelter
So what are you waiting for. There’s just three huge reasons to register for the next Startup Weekend Sheffield and that’s before we even get to the fantastic coaches, judges and speakers we’re lining up for you.
