- Who would like to have a meaningful impact on the world?
- Got a cool idea but lack the skills to bring it to life?
- Or want to use your superpowers in design, web dev or business to help develop someone else’s vision for improving education, healthcare, finance, community or mobile?
The Idea Transform team are organising a startup bootcamp weekend where people pitch ideas on a Friday evening, the audience votes for ideas they’d like to work on and people form teams to work on projects over the rest of the weekend. The event aims to inspire projects that can deliver long-term change across the globe. These projects will then be judged, and a winner announced on Sunday evening.
Teams will be supported and inspired throughout the weekend by mentors and speakers who will be on hand to answer questions and offer advice. The event will be held in Cambridge on 20th-22nd April 2012 at the Cambridge Judge Business School and is supported by the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning.
I’ve been told by the organiser that last year’s event saw many make their way down from Edinburgh and Glasgow so, if this is of interest, check out their website for more details. Developers in particular are especially encouraged to attend!
The event is open to both students (£40) and non-students (£70) from the UK and beyond! Ticket prices include lunches and dinners (yum yum) as well as a steady supply of caffeinated beverages and soft juices.
As usual the event presents an opportunity to meet cool and talented people, make friends and network with mentors, judges and speakers. You have until April 8th to buy the £70 tickets – afterwards the price will go up!
[Updated: DISCOUNT CODE to reduce standard non-student ticket price from £70 to £50! Valid until 8th April 2012. http://ideatransform2012.eventbrite.com/?discount=ITTWENTY ]
