John Fagan, Founder, Sync the City
Sync the City is a 54-hour event that brings together entrepreneurs, developers, business managers, marketing gurus, graphic artists, and students...We set it up because we wanted local companies, organisations and universities to come together and build something from nothing, for fun or profit! Put your money where your mouth is, and start shipping...The biggest tangible outcome is people get jobs. What better job interview could you have? I often see the event appearing on graduate CV's. We have a couple of companies (the SenLab Group and Prison Voicemail) that span out of the event by pivoting their initial idea.
