Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur? The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success? Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 500 past events in more than 100 countries around the world. At the event’s core is the same concept that has drawn over 35,000 prior attendees worldwide: startup enthusiasts of different backgrounds come together, share and pitch ideas, form teams and work an entire weekend to finally present a (minimally viable) product to a panel of experts – and then – maybe –  launch a startup.  Startup Weekend London is hoping to further connect  the vibrant creative community of London with the equally thriving startup community.  In any case, everybody will  go home with new (and yes! important) contacts , potential co-workers and an inspired feeling ( … and possibly a dire case of sleep deprivation.) There will be only 100 tickets so stay tuned – here and on Facebook.
