Startup Weekend hits Limerick November 21st to 23rd. It will be epic!

So it has finally arrived in Limerick. Famous across the world…. StartupWeekend is here this November. We could not be happier. One of only 4 cities participating in Ireland. Yes Limerick is one of them!! We are very proud and delighted to be able to be part of this “Global Startup Battle”. Limericks startup scene is picking up major traction over the last 18 Months… More young people are involved learning from experienced entrepreneurs, more vibrant events are taking place and this is an incredible opportunity for anyone out there interested in the startup world.


Anyone interested in Startups is the short answer!!

If you have an interesting idea or concept, If you have a solution or a vision, If you’re an innovator… will I keep going? 🙂 Maybe you want to learn the key aspects of building a startup. You may just want to assist on a team, validate your idea, mentor some of Limericks upcoming stars or just hang around with innovative like minded people – THIS IS FOR YOU!!! I REPEAT – THIS IS FOR YOU!! This is for all of us really. Entrepreneurs, Students, Lecturers, Developers and Designers alike. This is an amazing opportunity to grow, to learn and to build together.

Having an event like this in Limerick is key to the growth of our local startup scene, essential for local incubation centres and will go along way to stopping brain drain of some of our finest talent- This is where startup funnels are created, relationships are built and partnerships formed. We wanted to participate in bringing the first Startup weekend to Limerick because we appreciate the huge role this event can play both locally and nationally for our Startup landscape. This is just the beginning!!! Just think… I was there at the beginning of Startup Weekend in Limerick. Something I know will live with me forever.

We want attendees first and foremost to get a understanding of what #startuplife and building a startup is all about. To engage with people who are on the same journey with the same ambition and drive. We know your apprehensions and understand your worry… We have been there and we are still alive to share the tale :). We want to help you to help yourself. That is simply it.

Join us November 21st to 23rd for an all action weekend of Startup madness, creativity and fun. This is your opportunity. From all the StartupWeekend Limerick organisers we can’t wait to meet you, hear your ideas and assist in anyway we can. #SWLimerick
