I've been working on organizing the first ever Startup Weekend in New Orleans happening April 5-7 at Propeller in Mid City.
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, and startup enthusiasts come together to launch startups.
On Friday, attendees will gather to pitch ideas, form a team, and make a plan for the weekend. Saturday everyone will reconvene at Propeller to collaborate and meet the coaches. Teams will put the finishing touches on products on Sunday and prepare presentations and demos.
Attendees will receive three meals a day thanks to sponsors, in addition to perks including: $100 worth of Amazon Web Services credit, a free .co domain registration, three months of free hosting from domain.com, free business cards from moo, and six months free from User Voice.
You can register at swneworleans.eventbrite.com - use discount code: VIPdev for 50% registration.
Sorry for the little shameless plug ;)
