Dublin is set to host another edition of Startup Weekend and it is going to be EPIC!

Having gone from being a participant 3 years ago to organizing and mentoring at Startup Weekend Dublin, I have had no regrets getting involved in the 54-hour long events that see creatives, developers and business heads come together to birth ideas, build products, solve problems, make connections and even make money in just one weekend.

Although I came on the scene only in November of 2013, Startup Weekend Dublin has been going strong for 6 years now, and so I can only imagine the amount of impact it has had on the local ecosystem. While some participants have gone ahead to build great companies, others have stuck around to help build people into entrepreneurs.

And so, the next 54 hours will see more than 80 participants converge to share ideas, form teams, build products, work with mentors, validate markets, pivot a lot, develop partnerships, make sales and of course pitch to rock-star league of judges on the big stage for amazing prizes.

Many thanks to our sponsors including Bank of Ireland, Google, MTT, The T-Shirt Company, Domino’s Pizza, for helping to make this happen.

Do keep up with live updates from our twitter handle – @SWDub and the hashtag #SWDub.


Let’s do this!
