So, good luck to all those startup teams attending Launch48 in London in a couple of weeks. What’s Launch48 you say? Here’s the schpeel:
Launch48 runs events for people who want to try to learn and launch a web business. On Friday the 16th of October we are running a conference with some of the best web entrepreneurs from the UK speaking about marketing, PR, business, technical, and design in regards to launching a web business. From Friday 16th Oct in the evening to Sunday 18th October we are running the Launch48 weekend – a 48 hour event grouping people into teams to create new web businesses. During the weekend participants network, build a new business, and learn from a range of experienced mentors from the web industry.
In other words if you have a startup you want to find out will work or not, then hot-housing it for 48 hours may well help you decide.
One thing I like about the Launch48 guys is that they are all real startup people.
All the other events that go on will probably now bitch at me for not plugging theirs. But this is not yet another damn networking even over a warm glass of chardonnay. This is 48 hours to produce at least the bare bones of a startup. That’s cool.
Ticket sales are now open and numbers are limited (It’s
£100 for the whole weekend £60.00 full price to attend the weekend) but as a special offer to TechCrunch Europe readers, we’ve secured 50% off the normal ticket price for 20 participants if they use the code L48M-4589-TC. Good luck!
