Let's Go to the Tech for Good Startup Weekend at HUB SF!

SFTech4Good has three great events happening in November!

We're pleased to start the month off by teaming up with Hub Ventures to announce the second annual Startup Weekend at Impact Hub San Francisco on November 1-3.

We’re bringing together talented startup enthusiasts to spend an intense 54 hours building mobile, web, and software solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges, ranging from poverty alleviation to climate change.

The top teams will receive a variety of valuable prizes and will be fast-tracked to the finalist round for the next accelerator cohort of Hub Ventures. This event is ideal for entrepreneurs passionate about leveraging technology to create positive impact in the world who want to start a new company, add members to their existing teams, or simply network with other like-minded entrepreneurs.

The event will take place at Impact Hub San Francisco, a purpose driven co-working space located in the thriving SOMA tech corridor, and connected to 40+ other Impact Hub locations globally.

    Hey there everyone. We can help out a team at Startup Weekend Delaware. They need folks to take their survey re the app they're working on. Here is the message I just got via email: "Hello Everyone, I am currently competing in Startup Weekend Delaware and we are trying to beat another team in number of survey submissions! Please answer our super short survey if you have a second. It would really help us out! We need about 30 more submissions so everyone counts!!"

    Here is the link to the survey: http://bit.ly/MyInterestsSurvey

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
