Startup Weekend London
By Stewart Townsend on Dec 04, 2009
Startup Weekend, phew what a weekend it was !!!
58 hours where attendees were from varied backgrounds such as "developers, startup entrepreneurs,business managers, marketing peeps, graphic artists and more" but what they all did was build something that could be a business. The projects, all nine of them were completed over the weekend at Sun Startup Essentials HQ in London, where the attendees were fed and watered constantly to keep the brain and coding power going into the late night hours.
So with mentors and helpers a plenty, what did the attendees actually produce ?
