Damien Saunders is organising the next London Startup Weekend ( http://london.startupweekend.org) @startuplondon which will take place June 4 – 5 - 6 2010 in just under a month at the IBM offices on London’s Southbank. Getting around to organising a weekend like this is taking up a little bit of my time .. but I believe in the concept and the cause - and its going to be a great weekend!

Startup Weekend is the place to come for anyone with a new idea that they want to see brought to life. Over the weekend teams work together to take the ideas and create real new ventures. Anyone with an idea or interest in being an entrepreneur is welcome. People with a background in developing for web or mobile, design skills, marketing experience or entrepreneurial talents are welcome. It’s hoped the event will attract about 100 people from London and surrounding cities. 10 Earlybird Tickets have been released for £40.00 tickets can be brought at http://londonstartupweekendjune2010.eventbrite.com
