CharlotteJS Message Board › Charlotte Startup Weekend!

Charlotte Startup Weekend!

Nathan H.
San Francisco, CA
Hello CharlotteJS!

I'd like to quickly pass on some words from Jim Van Fleet about about something fun that is happening this weekend: Charlotte Startup Weekend. I'll be there, and so should you!


I'm Jim Van Fleet, ex-organizer of the Charlotte Ruby meetup and Linux User Group.  I also publish the Charlotte Startup Community e-mail newsletter (­ I've been co-organizing Charlotte Startup Weekend for about 18 months, and I have a unique problem this time around.  The team and I have been bringing on new sponsors and partners.  We've been pounding the pavement putting up signs to get word out.  I personally have had to use Facebook.  FACEBOOK, PEOPLE. 

I am going to be posting this message on every tech board I can find, and so some of you are going to be reading this joke more than once.  I am sorry about that.  But I am not sorry about stating that being polite hasn't worked.  Registration is low.  Our event has historically high levels of satisfaction across all the thousands of Startup Weekend events across the globe, but fewer than ever are going to be experiencing it this time around.

If you have plans this weekend, change them.  If you don't have plans, I just solved your problem.  Check out­ for more information on how to register, and a lot more information about why it's a good idea.  I really hope to see you on Friday night! 

Thanks for reading and considering it.
