Help save the planet & build a sustainable future for Norwich with Sync the City's StartUpCycling launch!

As part of Upcycle Your Waste, Sync the City—a Norwich startup event—is going green! They’re going to be holding a two day hackathon to build and launch an UpCycle startup designed to transform waste from local Norwich businesses into something new and valuable.

Before the big weekend, they’re asking people to sign up to the launch event to find out more about the project, and their eco-mission. We’d love to see you there!

This is part of the Upcycle Your Waste project which is funded by the European Union under the Interreg 2 Seas Programme. We also have sponsorship from UEA & Langham Recruitment, so that we can offer £4,000 in cash prizes.
