What's this event? As a community, we have a lot of knowledge we can share in many different areas. Are there some lessons you've learned since Startup Weekend that you wish you knew before? Is there a list of customer validation tricks that you've been dying to teach everyone? The goal of these Lightning Talks is to give people a chance to pass along that wisdom, and hopefully save others some headache in starting successful businesses!
