For those of you who had the entrepreneurial journey of a lifetime at the last Startup Weekend, or those of you on the hunt for the next one - we now bring you the Fashion Edition. In this 56-hour long, hands-on jam, the name of the game is to bridge the gap between the fashion and technology worlds.
The way we conceive, make, market, sell, and consume clothing is changing. The lines have blurred between traditional bricks and mortar retailers and shopping on the web. 3D printing allows us to print shoes on demand, and smart clothing tells us when it’s time for laundry. Summer of 2013 witnessed more than £347 million invested in fashion tech Startups. In the next 3 years, It is predicted that the wearable tech market alone will be a £10 billion dollar industry. Join us at Startup Weekend's first ever Fashion Edition as we take on this challenge. They are less than 5 tickets left for the Weekend so so get em' while you still can!

Startup Weekend is back! Join us at the Telegraph’s office in Nov 9-10-11.
Startup Weekend and Silicon Valley comes to the UK are teaming up to bring the craziness of the 54-hour long events simultaneously in London, Manchester , Sheffield, Southampton and Cambridge this coming November. Those events will bring developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts to come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups!
They will be using UK government data sets from data.gov.uk, import.io and the Open Knowledge Foundation to build startups. Participants will use this data to produce high impact applications/websites and unlock the power of public data to “rewrite the rules of the new economy”
After the weekend startups will be able to participate to another great contest, in which the winner of each event will be invited to attend an exclusive awards ceremony in London a couple of days after the event and will also get the chance to fight in the Global Startup Battle taking place between the 130 Startup Weekend events during GEW.
