Swansea Start Up Weekend 2014

Waters Creative recently had the pleasure in mentoring the highly talented, young entrepreneurs at the Swansea Startup Weekend 2014.

Swansea Startup Weekend is the Welsh startup event. The weekend long event is aimed at people who are looking to start a business or work with someone who has a great idea and wants to develop it at an accelerated pace. Entrepreneurs, Software Developers, Designers and Marketers all attend the event to work together on a new business idea that they then present to the judges on the Sunday night.

Having been involved at last year’s event too, we were really honoured to be asked to mentor at the 2014 event. To see a 60 second idea pitched on the Friday evening and then develop into a fully scoped, researched and executed idea is incredible. Something all businesses could certainly learn from.

The ideas this year ranged from websites to record your bucket list, food apps to prevent food waste, cycling power solutions, finger print recognition systems, social media engagement to games!

Rachael commented, ‘The ideas from 2013 were amazing, and over 2/3rds of the ideas generated last year are active businesses today. This proves what amazing talent there is in Swansea, and with determination, hard work and support these ideas can develop into real businesses, creating new jobs and opportunities in our region.’

Waters Creative would like to congratulate this years winning team ‘Skippr’.
