Startup Weekend is an international nonprofit organization that allows entrepreneurs, locally and from around the world to come and compete in a 54 hour startup competition. Startup Weekend Big Data is focused on startups that utilizes or creates data, the first Startup Weekend event in San Francisco focused on data sciences.
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. Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.
RSVP-ing on Meetup is not an entry. You can get tickets here. Excited to see you guys there!
