Product Forge 3



   - 
  Edinburgh

The 3rd edition of Product Forge is just around the corner, from the 21-23rd November as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week at CodeBase Edinburgh, the UK’s largest technology incubator.

At Product Forge you will prototype a new digital product or service such as a mobile or web app or even a data visualisation. The event takes place over 52 hours, and our delegates are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds, including student designers, developers and marketers as well as graduates, freelancers and entrepreneurs. All skill levels are welcome and everyone is free to pitch an idea (but it isn’t a requirement).

This is a great opportunity to meet new people, develop a piece of work for your portfolio, meet potential employers or even kickstart your own company!

Tickets include 7 meals, mentoring and 24 hour access to the venue. Students go free!
