Hi All -- our always active TEEMmate Zishan Ahmad asked me to forward the following to you about the amazing upcoming Startup Weekend in Stamford:
Some awesome announcements:
- Startup Weekend coming to town! http://stamford.startupweekend.org
In case you haven't heard of Startup Weekend, I assure you, it's an awesome experience. In short, you spend 54 hours, Friday night to Sunday afternoon, going through the process of forming a team and taking an idea to inception. Examples of Startup Weekend successes are Zaarly from LA which got initial funding by Ashton Kutcher who was at the event, and inbed.mefrom an event I actually attended at NYC that later received ~$1M in angel money. It happens. But to make it happen, among other things we need people who make stuff happen: all of you!
Check out the website to see our awesome list of judges and mentors so far.
I hope to see you all there!

As for our next meetup, I am looking at early April. Plan is to have our Second Annual Design night. Any suggestions, let me know.
