Come with an idea or the intention to help.
Leave with something to show, expanded possibilities and a stronger network of people who make things happen.
Participants will gather on a Friday evening and have 90 seconds to pitch their idea for a product, service or company to the group. After the pitches people break out, discuss their ideas with others and form teams to work on the idea. The goal is to have something to demo or launch at the end of the weekend.
Teams will likely consist of at least one developer, one designer, and one business development marketing person but can be as large as necessary. Feel free to talk to others about your ideas before the event, refine those ideas and get buy in.
You can bring a team with you or find yours at the event. Your project can be in any stage of development but be specific about what you want to accomplish over the weekend.
Cross team collaboration is promoted and facilitated. This is a hands-on event where we break down barriers and make progress on the things we’ve been talking about.
Accomplished mentors will be on hand to work with teams, discuss key issues that they may encounter: tech challenges, busines model, customer experience, design, getting early adopters and customers, fundraising, legal, PR and more.
This is an opportunity to brainstorm with others who have done it before and iterate on your ideas and products.
You come and build and we provide from awesome local restaurants and vendors — the whole weekend long. We’ll make sure you’re well fed and thirst is quenched.
Let’s join together for a weekend and create things that will demonstrate that we are a thriving entrepreneurial community that is not only talking but also doing.
If you have an idea for a startup or want to be part of a startup team, this is the event for you.
