This has been a most excellent Startup Weekend indeed. I mean, all Startup Weekend are awesome... obviously. In fact, if you manage to get through a Startup Weekend without saying 'awesome' at least 15 times, you're probably not doing it quite right.

Anyway, what I mean to say is Startup Weekend is always a hive of creativity, problem-solving, collaboration. But this Startup Weekend has seen a few added extra gems... for example, an impromptu but mandatory dance party...

And built amazing and totally viable Lego bridges...

There are many brilliant things about this Startup Weekend, but as always, one of the most brilliant things is the teams. The problems being solved this weekend are so wide and varied, no industry is safe from the entrepreneurial minds of our awesome attendees. We have politics, health, transport, education, and even gaming. Whatever your startup interests, there's a smorgasbord of ideas here to tickle your tastebuds.

So, with that in mind, we would like to invite you to come and share in the excitements and achievements of our teams over this weekend at our free pitch session today. These teams have been working hard to launch their startup in just 54 hours and they want your support!

The event takes place in Mappin Hall, Mappin Street, Sheffield at 5pm. Amazing things happen at Startup Weekend. One of these startups could end up being the next big thing of 2015.
