Register at Gateshead College from 1 - 2pm.
Inspired by the success of companies like Pinterest, Airbnb, Mixcloud and many others, we are living in the age of the digital startup. This session will look at the startup phenomenon from a couple of angles.
The first half of the session will feature a panel of startup stars who’ll share their insights into the heaven and hell of the startup. Our stellar panel includes..
Paul Smith, the Director of the Ignite 100 startup accelerator (Host & Panel Chair)
Mat Clayton, Co-founder of Mixcloud
Christen Duong of Foursquare
Martin Bryant, Managing Editor of The Next Web
Tristan Watson of Love Your Larder
The second half will feature the first-ever Thinking Digital Startup Competition. We’re recruiting 5 promising startups to pitch to our panel and to the audience for some great prizes and a chance to boost dramatically awareness of their new venture to potential financiers and partners. Prizes will include Nokia Lumia phones, Microsoft BizSpark Plus membership (worth up to $60,000) and another big prize we'll be announcing shortly.
