Code Connect - Startup Festival


The Startup Festival returns to offer inspiration, networking and pitching competitions to entrepreneurs and students curious about their potential.

The event takes over the University of Edinburgh Business School in the morning, with stories, knowledge shares and coffee for entrepreneurs, students and professionals. Lunchtime sees the festival take over CodeBase for an interactive talent fair, with resident CodeBase companies inviting students to engage in real business decisions. Lunch and talent-spotting are followed by the ever popular E Club pitching competition.
