Starburst Galaxy

Hi everyone, the date of the event is being moved to the mid of January. This time we will aim for longer notice period as well. Stay tuned!

For those who have paid - let me know if you want a refund otherwise it will be kept for the next event.


There is one bad and one good new! Traditionally, lets start from the bad one - we had offer for premises during two dates mentioned before (1st and 8th of December) but now, due to some misunderstanding in the communication channels, both dates with the premises are lost, unfortunately.

The good new supposed to cheer-up, traditionally that`s what happening - there IS a new date and a new venue for the event! Old friend Chalmers Innovation with Per ahead stretches out helping hand and offers their location. Thanks Per!

Lets get down to business:

If you want to pitch idea and looking for team mates- register ideas here (below in the comments field) - in a few short sentences tell us:

1. Idea

2. Who are you

3. What are you looking for

If you have skills and want to find cool ideas to work on- register here (below in the comments field) - in a few sentences tell us:

1. Who you are

2. What are the rock star skills you possess

Intro will help to get a glimpse for people on what to expect, and off course for us as organizers on what to prepare and make it a more smoothly event. "Idea pitchers" especially please do so in order to ensure the priority on the list of idea presenters.

Rough plan for the event looks like that:

Presenataion of ideas

Gathering into teams

Working together and exploring business potential

Some input from the coaches/advisers perhaps (please contact if you want to volunteer for this)

End of the day pitching it to the rest

It should take most of the day including brakes and mingles, so be prepared to spare some time.

Event is sponsored by ourselves which will cover food, drinks, snacks, and some pen&paper for working in a teams.

Looking forward to see formation of the new unseen galaxies!!

Diversity is a cool thing – so don`t forget to share with everyone!

Hi everyone!

Last time on The Rise and Shine of IT Start-ups we have experienced extraordinary collision of two different galaxies which brought so much positive vibe from all of you!

Based on the wishes and proposals from the previous attendees this time we are going even deeper into this cosmic phenomena where we will become a part of the new stars formation in the starbusrt galaxy.

As some of you may already know Chalmers Innovation have start-up support program called „Start-up Spring Camp“. More information about previous projects can be found here. The program starts early next year January. However, application process is the whole-year-round.

Due to high interest for start-ups from all of you, and motivation for developing local start-up community here in Gothenburg the proposal is that we can have a mini „Start-up Weekend“ event. This is not an official event which would take only one full weekend day instead of two and would include the pitch of idea, team formation, evaluation of idea and finally presentation. Later these ideas could be further developed and presented to the „Start-up Spring Camp 2013“ where the official coaching would start. Whatsoever, to succeed on application and get into the program is only an „add up feature“ which gives extra stimulus. The ultimate goal or the „core feature“ is to meet people and share ideas while having fun gaining really great experience!

In order to shape this to the next unforgetable experience I would like to ask you to spare 30 seconds of your time answering three simple question which will help for us to better plan this event. You can do it here. Also you are more then welcome to participate and promote this event by sharing the link to this page to even more interested individuals!

More information will be coming soon!

    1. Idea: A website(and an app later), where anybody, who always wanted to write(either biography or fiction) but unsure of various things, can just forget about all the formalities of the conventional book writing and can just come over and tell their story heart fully to the world. The most interesting part is what we are going to do with these stories and that is what would let anybody come forward and write them down. I can discuss more about it in person.

    2. Who are you: I'm a Masters Student at Chalmers with an eternal passion for technology entrepreneurship!

    3. What are you looking for: I have a vivid view of this website, but only, when I close my eyes. I want people, who can let anyone see what I'm seeing now. I'm looking for experts in website development.

    I am wondering whether it might make sense to separate events for pitches and project formation. I do not think I am the only member who is already executing on an idea and primarily looking for potential partners. From what I have seen on the facebook group, there have been several shoutouts from people who sound like they are in a similar position.

    While I would jump at any opportunity to pitch my business to people looking for something great to invest themselves in, I wouldn't be available to participate in any other business. So, the question would therefore be, separate events for pitching and formation. Maybe one evening for existing projects to present themselves, then maybe a mechanism to indicate interest in joining as a partner/co-founder/employee and then a second event when any new-formed project is developed from draft to presentation.

    Whaddaya think?

    Or maybe there is a need for an entirely separate evening for entrepreneur "speed dating"?

      Think this event may work for this purpose as well, though I think that you may find Start Up Weekend (by Chalmers Innovation) to be especially suited to prepare for a beta and for potential investors. But as the event is very much aimed at having both ideas and supporters of those ideas trying to find interesting common projects to work on... and depending on response / outcome

      (cont.) we may want to think of some kind of workshop for that stage of the project.

    Any progress with this, or should we take the opportunity of ICT Startup Camp Reunion Event to pitch, network, show interest in whatever comes to liking? If anyone missed it, here is info about that event I am referring to:

    The Reunion!

    The 29th of November we invite all Startup Camp participants, mentors and contributors to Stena Center for an After Work. Food and drinks together with the best people from the Gothenburg startup community in one place, so bring your teammates and be there! Take the chance to pitch your latest idea, get updated, get together with campmates, expand your network or just hang out and enjoy. We will open the doors at 5PM, come by when you can and stay as long as you want, maybe we will end-up somewhere downtown later on.

    PS. A new Startup Camp will begin in mid January, spread the word please! DS.
