Techstars Startup Weekend Plymouth April 26th-28th

The first ever Plymouth Techstars Startup Weekend is taking place at the end of April. A Startup Weekend is a 54-hour weekend event, during which like-minded developers, business professionals, entrepreneurs, marketing enthusiasts and more pitch ideas for new startups, form teams and work together to develop a prototype/presentation by Sunday evening.

What happens at a Startup Weekend:

Day 1: Meet, pitch & team up

Day 2: Learn from mentors & get to work

Day 3: Present to the Judges

Do you have an entrepreneurial idea you would like to pursue or a problem you would like to solve? This event will give you the chance to team up, create a prototype, validate a business idea and receive feedback from experience entrepreneurs and other professionals, all in one weekend! The University of Plymouth are collaborating with organisations and business professionals, to create an event full of smart, passionate people with the best tools and methods available to immerse participants in the ideal environment for startups to be born.

The Plymouth Startup Weekend has the theme “Health & Wellbeing” – an issue which affects us all. We want to develop new ideas and ways of addressing the Health and Wellbeing challenges of the 21st Century! Interested? Join in!

The idea you pitch might have a Health and Wellbeing focus such as:

  • Can technology help local people as they age?
  • How can we tackle the risk to health posed by air pollution?
  • What can help tackle loneliness?
  • How do we manage data from the wearable digital tools increasingly used to manage health?
