I attended the London Startup Weekend about 10 months ago. It was a totally refreshing weekend with a lot of fun involved. That Friday I ran out of my day job, jumped on the plane at Dublin airport and before I knew it was coming up with new business ideas in the the heart of London for the next 72 hours, living on a diet of sushi, pizza and old fashioned sweets. We had so much fun. Bela & I ended up being the weekend Fussball champions, something which is always very important when starting a startup. Aside from socialising, I captained a team based around the use of brands in games. We didn’t make the final cut (perhaps due to the fussball) but I think I ended up doing about 47 pitches, and met so many great talented people it was brilliant. Long story short, it really gave me a kick up the you know what to get moving. Two months later I quit my job and founded Chocolate Lab Apps. StartupWeekend is wonderful, so if you ever get a change to attend I’d strongly advise it. Startupweekend.org very kindly published a guest blog post I wrote, if you click on the picture above you’ll see the full version. Enjoy!
