Startup Weekend Vancouver, Disruptive Technology, May 31, 2013.
Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur? The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success? Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.
It's a 54-hour mentored event where hardware-engineers, software-developers, graphic-designers, and business people come together, pitch ideas, form teams, build products, and create startups all in a single weekend.
The event culminates in a competition where these newly formed startups present their venture to judges for fame and prizes.
Startup Weekend provides an unprecedented level of networking, team building, learning, and life changes for its attendees and their communities. Sometimes a company emerges, sometimes one doesn’t, but every time people leave with more experience, insight, knowledge, friends, and resources than they came with.
This Disruptive Technology themed event is focused on hardware engineering and disruptive innovation. It will be coordinated with several complimentary events, such as startup methodologies workshops, technology bootcamps by Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla at PolyglotConf, and innovative speaker events. The weekend will be followed by an SW-Next event to help mentor startups beyond the weekend.
