What is Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where developers, designers and business development folks come together to pitch an idea and launch a business, all in one weekend. It is a great opportunity to test startup ideas, meet potential co-founders, build the community in San Diego and launch your next startup.
If you have an idea for a new mobile application and are looking to turn it into a real startup, this is an opportunity to do so.
For more information, visit sandiego.startupweekend.org, there is a 5 minute video which describes the event pretty well.
When you register, use promotional code "sdandroid" to get in for the early bird price of $75, which covers all your meals from Friday night to Sunday night.
You can also register directly through this link: http://swsandiego.eventbrite.com/?discount=sdandroid
Benefits to attending:
This is more than a hackathon, many times at hackathons you develop something without the customer validation or business plan to back it up
We bring in the best mentors from around San Diego, not just business mentors, but technical help as well, including CTO's from various local startups
We'll be offering free technical workshops prior to the event which we will announce later
A great opportunity to network, meet, and work with other developers, designers, and entrepreneurs
Please let me know if you have any questions!
