George Mills attended Startup Weekend Nottingham in 2013 and reflects on experience of the weekend.
“I went to the Startup Weekend to get involved with some unique ideas, see different skills and work with outgoing people – by the end of the weekend I had come away with all three. Seeing the process of rapidly formulating, validating and developing business ideas through combining the skills of each team member was exciting, the whole thing was amplified by the fact that we had different approaches and experience. From developers and designers to entrepreneurs and industry experts it was great to work on unique ideas with people who think is different ways.
That was the biggest eye opener for me – being with new people, bringing together a team and working towards goals in an intense environment – things really do happen.”
George is now a coach at the Next Business Generation Programme in Nottingham, helping local startups on the execution of Lean Methodology.
