StartupWeekend Trondheim

  • Jun 15, 2012 · 5:00 PM

From an idea to a company in 54 hours.

StartupWeekend is a 'hackathon' with the goal of creating a business during a weekend. You will work on your favorite project/idea with a team of enthusiastic people. It is an action-packed event where you will build a prototype/demo, make a business model and validate the market.

The event is open to everybody, so this is your chance to get a ton of useful connections. Common for all participants is an interest in entrepreneurship or building something.

StartupWeekend starts on friday with open microphone where participants participate ideas (voluntary), the most popular projects are found, and teams are formed. On Saturday and Sunday you will work on your idea/project while you get guidance from mentors and a facilitator. We finish of with presentation of the businesses you built and a jury will award prizes.
This time there will be a special prize to the best business using the new Bluetooth Low Energy chip.

    The information before the event should have been a bit more structured. There was the trondheim.startupweekend site, with registration, then we should also sign up at Meetup (which was the "official signup place" for the pre-event the Wednesday before, but not for the weekend?), and got info via facebook as well. A bit confusing to know if it was about the same thing, or different. So, perhaps fewer information channels.

    I liked the weekend, great facilitator, and the organizers did a good job. Great food, great venue. Would it be possible to have a limit to the team size, or some kind of structure about forming teams? The differences in size was a bit extreme. We had a good introduction to BMUG at the Wednesday event, but those who weren't there did not. Maybe at Friday (or early Saturday) there should have been an intro on how to approach the startup process. That would have helped to get all the participants to get a similar idea of what to expect to get out of the weekend.

    Great experience. I wasn't completely sure about what it would be like and at the end, it has been better than my expectations. Thanks to all the team of organizers who did a fantastic job.
