Entrepreneurs can turn their ideas into a business proposal in three days at the next Startup Weekend Sheffield.

The event, taking place from November 18 to 20, offers coaching and networking opportunities over the course of an intense weekend programme.

Participants come up with a business idea before developing it with the help of industry experts. They then present to a panel of judges with backgrounds in entrepreneurship, design and development.

The weekend takes place at the University of Sheffield's Diamond Building. A £61.65 ticket includes seven meals, a Startup Weekend T-shirt, coach travel and accommodation.
