5x Startup Weekends taking place simultaneously across the UK this November

5 events events are taking place this November to bring developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts together to formulate and share ideas, create teams, build products, and, of course – launch start-ups.

Startup Weekend and Silicon Valley comes to the UK are teaming up to launch an epic weekend of 54-hour long events simultaneously across the England in London, Manchester, Sheffield, Southampton and Cambridge this coming November.

According to the organisers, “Teams will be free to work on any startup they want but they will have access to UK government data sets from data.gov.uk to build startups. Participants will use this data to produce high impact applications/websites to unlock the power of public data to help “rewrite the rules of the new economy”.”

After the weekend, the most exciting startups will be invited to attend an awards ceremony in central London later in November. They’ll also get the chance to participate in the Global Startup Battle – which will take place between the 130 Startup Weekend events during GEW.
