UP Global, a non-profit dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship, grassroots leadership, and strong communities, is organizing the maiden edition of Ibadan Startup Weekend.
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.
Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.
Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
Ibadan Startup Weekend will hold from Friday, May 1, 2015 at 6:30 PM to Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 9:00 PM (WAT) at Bridge Hub 110 Alalubosa (Dugbe to Apata Road), Ibadan.
I will try as much as possible to keep you posted
