Startup Spring is centred on action, innovation and education. It is the perfect place to get feedback on an idea, find co-founders, specific skill sets, or a team to help execute an idea. The festival provides budding entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their ideas to their fellow peers and receive feedback, potentially walking away with great advice and a co-founder or investor as well.
