One lucky team will win 3 months of shared office space worth over £1500 from eOffice (http://www.eoffice.net). The package includes a business address, mail forwarded weekly in the UK, a telephone number, telephone answering, call forwarding to one UK line and up to 100 hours of hotdesking each month.
As well, 2 Runners Up will walk away with a package of 3 months Virtual Office Premium – worth approx £600 – This includes business address, mail forwarded weekly in the UK, telephone number, call forwarding to one UK line and telephone answering service per month.
Damien Saunders UK Organiser, said London Startup Weekend is working to find business support options for everyone that attends and the prize packages from eOffice are amazing.
Startup Weekend is a great experience for everyone that comes along, the best thing about the weekend is what you take away from – this includes practical stuff like building your network or learning more about setting up a business.
You choose to work as a team and at the end on the Sunday night, teams present their business model, working prototype or maybe its a video – each team has a chance to win one of the many prizes.
The event is open to anyone interested in the local entrepreneurial community, and it puts them in a setting where anything is possible. Teams have even started to generate revenue during the 54hr event, and others have gone on to direct angel and VC investment. None of this takes into account the amazing networking, ongoing professional relationships, and amazing experience that happen at every event.
Tickets are still available at £50.00 & £35 for concessions. Tickets can be brought at http://londonstartupweekendjune2010.eventbrite.com
