This past weekend, GateHouse Group, represented by COO Jørgen Brøndgaard Nielsen, participated in the annual Start-up Weekend Aalborg (SWAA17).
For us at GateHouse Group, participating in the SWAA17 is an opportunity to offer our experience to entrepreneurs, but also an opportunity to see what innovation 2017 looks like from other perspectives than our own. The entrepreneurial approach, energy and state-of-mind is a powerful fuel for business advancement – no matter how established a company is.
Start-up Weekend is a 54-hour event designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Start-up Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.
