Ideas … I love ideas, and I have lots of them. How about you? Do you find your self creating and inventing in your mind, forming business concepts that you think will work, if only …. or do you know people like us, who just are full of ideas? What if I tell you you can have help getting those ideas out of your head and turn it into reality with the help of skilled people who’d match your enthusiasm and passion?
Enter Start-up Weekend:
Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1800 past events in 120 countries around the world in 2014. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
