Just a reminder that Birmingham Science Park Aston is holding an entrepreneurial weekend event 16th - 18th March, called Launch 48.
The event runs for 48 hours from Friday evening to Sunday evening with the goal of launching a new web or mobile business idea at the end of the weekend.
By encouraging entrepreneurs with no or little experience to attend the event with diverse skills such as business, finance, management, software development, and design, Launch48 creates a unique environment for starting new businesses. Coupled with mentors who have run successful companies or have relevant skills to the web and mobile industries, such as PayPal, Launch48 has experienced great success over the past year with at least 2 businesses going on to generate revenue.
The event empowers attendees with entrepreneurial skills, shatters preconceptions about what is achievable in a short period of time, introduces like-minded people to one another, and offers people the ability to learn skills. Participants leave the event having formed strong relationships having participated in creating a new business idea. Encouragement to launch on the Sunday offers focus to the teams during the event.
I’d like to offer any Birmingham Entrepreneurs members the chance to purchase tickets at a reduced cost, using the discount code ‘e4fmember’.

Hope to see you there!
