Startup Weekend? It has been Startup Month and it is still ongoing


When Tom (my business partner) and I volunteered (kind of) to organise the first ever Startup Weekend in the West Country, neither of us really recognised what we were taking on!

Thanks to the fantastic folks at Bath Ventures, the organisation of the event has been the easiest part - well easy compared to getting sponsorship, which has proved to be a substantive challenge. But following fantastic efforts from Tom, as well as Bath Ventures we now also have Bath & North East Somerset Council and Bath Spa University on board.

Together with fantastic speakers, judges and mentors from companies including Eden Ventures, RightMove, Grant Tree and Catalyst Venture Partners.

Now we just have to sell all the tickets - which is going well, but as usual I will not be happy until we have hit our target - watch this space.
