Event description

Description

Join us at University of Glasgow's Tech Start for the next in our series of meet-ups for aspiring software-based entrepreneurs. Our meet-ups bring you a range of inspiring speakers - from undergrad students who are just starting out with their first app venture, all the way to experienced CEOs who have built successful businesses. The message is simple: creating your own start-up is hard work, heaps of fun, and an unparalleled learning experience. All delivered with free pizza and refreshments, plus lots of opportunities to network with other prospective entrepreneurs.

This month our speakers are:
