Want to be Edinburgh's answer to Mark Zuckerberg?

Want to be Edinburgh’s answer to Mark Zuckerberg? Next weekend marks the start of Launch48 Edinburgh, an event that challenges people to team up and create a new web or mobile application over the course of a single weekend. From pitching ideas on the evening of Friday 29 October to final presentations on Sunday evening, teams will work tirelessly day and night to produce prototypes, business models and revenue projections, supported by experienced mentors.
The event is perfect for people looking for real work experience or a new project to work on. Many of the companies from previous events have survived the weekend and continue growing. Launch48 is an excellent opportunity to:
• get real-world experience designing for the web or mobile
• build your portfolio
• meet new people you can work with
• learn new skills.
We're looking for developers, designers, marketers, business people, and people with ideas to join us at the event. It's £24.95 for the whole weekend and mini conference, including drinks and food. Book now:
