Start-Up Weekend (18-20 Mar 2022)

Our Enterprise@APU team organized a Startup Weekend from 18 March 2022 to 20 March 2022 (Friday-Sunday).

The Startup Weekend is a great platform for our students to learn through a structured 3-day ideation bootcamp aimed to identify a need or a problem and to test the viability of their ideas by pitching their business model at the end of the programme. It is also a good opportunity to connect and network with passionate people driven to develop and build business ideas. We were impressed by the performance of our team of students!

There were 37 registrants and a total of 9 teams managed to get into the final pitching session and the result is as follows:
