Barcamp Leeds - Startup Essentials Supported
By Stewart Townsend on Aug 22, 2008
So barcamp Leeds was last week and part of the LS1 week, that has seen another northern city bring together a series of events aimed at supporting the startup and entrepreneur community locally. At the heart of this is Imran Ali, a person who I have a lot of respect for in spending time to pull a group of like minded people together and drive these events to happen, it takes a lot of energy and effort to bring together a 100 people, feed them and in certain respects guide them.
Barcamp leeds, Im proud to say that I, thus Startup Essentials supported and sponsored to help with that effort and will continue to do so, to enable communities to share their knowledge and passion is core to Sun as a company, but also to Startup Essentials as a means to help startups. So what happened over this weekend then ?
\* Two days
\* 90 People
\* 39 Sessions on all manner of subjets.
And some great ideas, future thought discussions and new business relationships forged, thus counting it a huge success in my eyes and shows also the people behind this event, worked hard to make it happen to keep the audience there and discussing till late in the night (or was it the Startup Essentials supported element haha)
If you don't know what a barcamp is, find one near you and go, it is so rewarding in the fact that the audience create the content, you decide what you want to hear and talk about, thus it is so diverse but also stimulating sharing those ideas.
Anyway if you want to know more, check out Imrans blog it has all the details on the event and when its happening next, if you want details on these types of events, then don't forget join Startup Essentials now.
