Sir Steve Redgrave and the organisers of Bath Startup Weekend

Four times Olympic rowing gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave famously said “”I hereby give permission to anybody who catches me in a boat again to shoot me.”

A few days before the beginning of Bath Startup Weekend #1, the above statement could have easily been modified to how we were feeling. The way we struggled to get sponsorship meant that the whole process was a huge challenge, until of course the wonderful people at Bath Ventures, Bath Spa University and BathNES Council stepped in.

Now we are doing it all over again and because Bath Startup Weekend #1 was such a success and fantastic fun, the feeling this time is that you would have to shoot us to stop us from making #2 happen and be even better than the first time around!
