Northumbria Start-Up Weekend

From the 6th-8th of March, I assisted Transmit Start-Ups in delivering an intense programme of workshops, business coaching and hands-on activities at Northumbria University.

Two teams went head to head, brainstorming ideas and developing them on the business model canvas as well as supplementing them with workshops in content marketing, market research, sales, pitching and more, before pitching their finished plans to a panel of judges at the end of the weekend.  

It was inspiring to see so many committed participants with entrepreneurial mindsets coming up with some great ideas under a lot of pressure. See the video above for an insight into the weekend, and head over to Transmit Start-Ups for more...
