Sync the City

Sync the City 2024 will take from Thursday 28 November to Saturday 30 November 2024, at The King's Centre in Norwich. Tickets will go on sale later this year and are expected to sell out fast – so email business@uea.ac.uk to be put on our mailing list. We will let you know when tickets become available, and we’ll also let you know about free online events where you can find out more about Sync the City and speak to people who have taken part. In the meantime, you can see our list of FAQs.

Looks amazing right?

You will be part of 12+ teams, consisting of engineers, designers and business people (professional and students) who will work over 3 days to build your own digital business startup from scratch! We have mentors on hand to guide you through the structure process. The finale will be your team pitching your business (for fun or for profit) in front of the public and expert judges .

You never know, you may witness the birth of next Facebook or Amazon, or we might discover the next Elon Musk or Steve Jobs, so don’t miss out! Also, students: it's the perfect experience to put on your CV (that's if you don’t get hired at the event!).

So, if you are a budding or professional entrepreneur, developer, software engineer, business manager, marketing guru, graphic artist, data scientist or anybody who likes to muck in, then sign up! If you don’t know anything about technology, but you have a problem at work in which you think technology could solve it, then grab a non-technical ticket and come along. We have had Black Cab drivers, surgeons people from a wide range of different backgrounds at previous events.

Come boost your confidence, change the world, network, make friends, learn a whole bunch, or simply experience what it’s like to work in a digital business or tech startup for three days!
