Build & Launch a Startup in 54 Hours – for fun or profit

After the roaring success of Sync the City 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 SyncNorwich & UEA are again bringing it to you this autumn. Sync the City 2019 is a 54 Hour event that brings together budding entrepreneurs with experienced business mentors and technology experts.  Sync the City is a bit like an episode of The Apprentice, followed by an episode Dragons Den, all condensed into 54 Hours.

The 54-Hour Startup Event

Sync the City is a 54 Hour event (inspired by StartupWeekend) that brings together budding entrepreneurs with experienced business mentors and technology expertise, during which groups of entrepreneurs, developers, business managers, marketing gurus, graphic artists pitch ideas for new startup companies. For a flavour of last year, please see the 2017 Showreel here.

Looks amazing right?

You will be part of 1 of 12+ teams, consisting of engineers, designers and business people (professional and students) who will work for 54 hours to build your own digital business startup from scratch!  We have mentors on hand to guide you through the structure process.  The finale will be your team pitching your business (for fun or for profit) in front of  the public and 5 expert judges .  The winning team receiving £3,000 cash, the peoples choice £1,000 (voted by audience).  You can see previous videos here.

You never know, you may witness the birth of next Facebook or Amazon or we might discover the next Elon Musk or Steve Jobs, so don’t miss out!  Also, students it’s the perfect experience to put on your CV (thats if you don’t get hired at the event!).

So, if you are a budding or professional entrepreneur, developer, software engineer, business manager, marketing guru, graphic artist, data scientist or anybody who likes to muck in, then sign up!  If you don’t know anything about technology, but you have a problem at work in which you think technology could solve it, then grab a Non Technical ticket and come along.  We have had Black Cab drivers, Surgeons and all kinds of people in previous events.

Come boost your confidence, change the world, network, make friends, learn a whole bunch, or simply experience what it’s like to work in a digital business or tech startup for 3 days! For some background details about what to expect at the event, see our blog post from last year – Sync the City – What to Expect.
