Achill Island, Co. Mayo is the destination for the upcoming Startup Weekend West taking place on Friday, April 27, 2018. The theme is the future of towns.

This unique Startup Weekend will bring together designers, developers, county councillors, urban planners, founders, and much more to conceive ideas and build solutions that will bring life and economic vitality back into Irish towns.

The weekend costs just €60 to attend, and that includes all meals each day, a t-shirt and some cosy accommodation.

How it works

On Friday, some of the attendees will pitch an idea for 60 seconds. The best ten ideas (voted for by attendees) will progress to build a team and then through to pitch at the final.

On Saturday, mentors and coaches (who are established business owners or experts in their area) will be brought in to help guide the teams through execution.

On Sunday, the event will finish with the final pitches and winners announced. There’s also a cracking after-party.

Book now as places are limited at this national event.
