There will be help from industry experts and mentors and feedback from the panel of judges with backgrounds in design, development and entrepreneurship.
The aim of the Startup Weekend is to create connections with your co-participants and meet potential future co-founders.
Workshops will be conducted including training in presentation delivery and pitch performance. The opportunity is not exclusively for students, the event welcomes people of all ages and education levels.
The event will take place from 18 – 20 November in the Diamond.
