You will meet really cool like minded people that you’ll get to work with for a weekend. You will get exposed to what it’s like to take an idea and create a concept ready for market. You will learn new skills. The most innovative ideas will have the chance to pitch your ideas to judges. You will get to win top notch prizes.
