London Startup Weekend at IBM South Bank

Startup Weekend is the place to come for anyone with a new idea that they want to see brought to life. Over the weekend teams work together to take the ideas and create real new ventures.

Anyone with an idea or interest in being an entrepreneur is welcome.

People with a background in developing for web or mobile, design skills, marketing experience or entrepreneurial talents are welcome.

It's hoped the event will attract about 100 people from London and surrounding cities.

"London Startup Weekend is different to other events, because people come together to create new and fresh business models that use the internet and technology," says organiser Damien Saunders.

The event is open to anyone interested in the local entrepreneurial community, and it puts them in a setting where anything is possible.

Teams have even started to generate revenue during the 54-hour event, and others have gone on to direct angel and VC investment.

None of this takes into account the amazing networking, ongoing professional relationships, and amazing experience that happen at every event. In 2010, more Startup Weekend events are being planned across Europe.

Tickets are £50 for the weekend and there are concession passes available for students, younger persons, the unemployed and for people with special needs or not for profit groups.
