The Startup Festival returns for another year, and this time we’ve teamed up with incubator CodeBase to bring the first interactive talent fair to Edinburgh.

Students will be invited to come along and engage in real business decisions with CodeBase’s resident companies.

Instead of handing out freebies, the fair—which goes by the name of Code Connect—will see companies test students’ appetite for a job with Edinburgh’s most desirable cohort of technology companies.

Companies will be presenting projects on pricing strategies, user interface, experience design and testing, and customer persona design.

Startup Festival takes over the University of Edinburgh Business School in the morning, with stories, knowledge shares, and coffee for entrepreneurs, students, and professionals.

Lunchtime sees the festival decamping to CodeBase for an interactive talent fair, with resident companies inviting students to engage in real business decisions. Lunch and talent-spotting are followed by the ever-popular E Club Pitching Competition.

The day will round off with networking and an awards ceremony for the hardworking winners.
