Daniel Kyne, lead organiser of the first ever Startup Weekend Dublin: Student Edition, reports from the event in Google’s Dublin HQ.

Digital Youth Council founding member Daniel Kyne spoke to students, organisers, Googlers and the global Startup Weekend director during the weekend event in Dublin.

Young people from different backgrounds arrived on Friday evening to see if they could form teams and build a winning start-up in just 54 hours.

Ideas explored over the weekend included platforms for manage supply chains, plan weddings and events, and book bands.
