IsleStartup Accelerator 2012
"Form a team, build a product - launch a company" is the aim of the event, and what better way to harness the potential of the Isle of Man than by organising a startup event?
Some of you will already know what a startup weekend consists of, for those who don't, it's a meeting of various minds who are keen to develop new disruptive businesses for the world we live in, within a short time frame.
There is no particular theme to this startup weekend, apart from the general aim to create businesses out of the developed ideas.
You should approach the weekend with a brief idea that you will pitch to the room for 60 seconds. Those pitches that garner the most interest from those attending will create teams to work upon the idea.
