Founder Brunch: “Ideas 2 App” with Simon Edwards, Founder @ Lightstart Apps
Happy New Year everybody! We’re back and raring to go with the first Founder Brunch of 2017!
Founder Brunch is a monthly event that brings together early-stage founders across all sectors who want to meet other entrepreneurs, learn something new and actionable… and eat some muffins.
This month, we’re welcoming Simon Edwards, Founder of Lightstart Apps, an analysis-led app agency in Leeds. He’s inviting you to take part in an interactive ‘ideas to app’ workshop – crowdsourcing app ideas from you and (virtually) creating them live at the event. Watch how easy it is to go from an idea to MVP and monetisation strategy in just a couple of hours (It’s a bit like Startup Weekend… but faster and without all the exhaustion).
Recent “Ideas to Apps” sessions have produced pearls such as:
- ‘Tinder for Bouncers’
- The world’s greatest app for bus travelers.
- The IoT Hotel Platform
- The only app you want on your smartphone after a car accident
- The PokemonGo of Fitness Apps
- The death of death by powerpoint – Presentify, the VR/AR event app!
- Borrowr – the Air BnB of Social Projects
Simon and his team are experts in app design and customer journeys. Usually running these sessions in Leeds, we’re delighted to be welcoming them for their first jaunt down the M1 to Sheffield to hang out with us and teach us something new.
Ideal for anyone with a new app, platform or website idea, or for non-technical founders who want to understand this process better for themselves or their team.
Bring an idea if you have one, or if you’d just like to come for the coffee, muffins, and entertainment, that’s fine too!
10am – coffee and mingling (and muffins!)
10:30ish – session starts
12ish – more coffee if there’s any left
Feel free to bring your laptop and use our coworking space for the rest of the day, free of charge!
