Startup Weekend Creatives Edition
Okay, we know you have barely recovered from the entrepreneurial journey of your lifetime, which was Startup Weekend Mobile Edition. You sweated, you flexed and you stayed up until the crack of dawn to build the startup of your dreams. You say you want to do it again? Of course!
In fact, everyone was so excited by the last event that they insisted we hold another one as soon as possible. And the testimonials from the Mobile Edition video have touched us so deeply we could not resist. That said, we are absolutely exhilarated to announce Startup Weekend Creatives Edition which will take place July 12-14, 2013 [buy your ticket here].
What do we mean by creatives? Specifically, we are talking about advertising,marketing, branding and the creative agencies that make it happen. (But tickets are open to everyone, even people who do not work in an agency).
London has long been one the great advertising capitals of the world. Literally millions of pounds in ad revenue are generated every year and more and more of that is happening through digital channels. Indeed, most of the well known disruptive services of our day, such as Facebook or Twitter, would be nowhere without the promise of eyeballs on the ad space (er, we mean computer screen). And ad-land knows this as they are making more and more efforts to help foster the London startup community.
So for this edition we are connecting the creative agencies who produce these works with you the new generation of developers, designers and business people. We know that bringing together the marketing-savvy of industry experts with the passion and knowledge of London’s top-tier future entrepreneurs will bring ground-shaking results. And we just can’t wait for it!
