What is Startup Weekend? Startup Weekend is a 54 hour hackathon whose motto is "No Talk. All Action" where people come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups.
What should I expect from the info session? This information session is a pre party event for our July 26th-28th Startup Weekend. Come chat with alumni from last year as they share successes and pitfalls from their entrepreneurial journey and mingle with others who are actively pursuing their ideas.
