What is QHack?

We run particularly exciting intensive events, called QHacks. These weekends are high-energy, fun, intensive opportunities to learn how to get businesses off the ground, meet entrepreneurial students, network with mentors and experts and, quite possibly by the end of it launch your own business!

This Autumn we will deliver QHack fully online. You will need access to a computer and internet connection in order to participate.

Dates

Saturday 31st October 9:30 - 17:30 / Sunday 1st November 9:30 - 13:30

Saturday 7th November 9:30 - 19:00 / Sunday 8th November 9:30 - 20:00

Deadline to apply: 18th October 

What will you gain?

  • By participating in the QHack weekend you will learn and consolidate a whole range of skills, from idea generation and selection to getting out of the building and talking to customers; from developing a sound pitch deck to giving a brilliant pitch. 
  • You will be also working with mentors to help you refine your idea. These are all people from the industry - what a great chance to network too!
  • If you are looking for a co-founder for your business, this is the perfect environment to potentially meet that special someone that has the grit and enthusiasm to take an entrepreneurial venture to the next level.
