What we're about

You've learned a lot. You have learned to develop and do some programming. Whether its for back end, front end, or anything else, you've gained a skill that involves a lifetime of learning.
But the thing about languages is you have to apply it. Use it or lose it. Expand or contract.
Here at PDCU (Projects for Programmers, CS Majors, and UX Designers), we provide opportunities to apply these skills to interesting projects. These projects are actually business ideas created by non-tech entrepreneurs. so, whether you just need some more experience or are interested in becoming a co-founder, we ideas a teammates waiting for you!
At the meetup, you can help work on someone's idea or interact with the organizers as we work on one. If you find a co-founder or just someone to work on something with, you can get started developing while your teammate fleshes out the market strategy, etc.
How easy can it be for you to fall into the next wave of Atlanta entrepreneurs? Just show up! :)

Welcome to Startup Oasis - July Pitchathon!

If you are a developer, you are in the right place!

Startup Oasis was created to pierce the illusion of accessibility of startups and tech by creating a grassroots forum for early-stage founders to pitch to those in the tech ecosystem to get real-time feedback for their idea or business.

If you are a startup founder, investor, developer, marketer, or anyone else in the tech ecosystem looking to start, join, or help a tech startup, this event is for you! 4-6 founders pitch their startup to the audience, then they will join their own breakout room to get feedback from the audience. People have been able to start a business as a result of this process.

If you would like to pitch, please fill out this form:
https://forms.gle/KS2Faz4MTKKMGhRn8

The event will start promptly at 2 PM, and networking will be open for the first 15 minutes. If you would like to pitch, please message the host during this time. During the next half hour, 4-6 founders will pitch their idea to the audience (4 minute cutoff time, then 1-2 minutes for audience questions). Then we will have each founder join their own breakout room, and attendees can help the founders with ideas, strategies, and tactics for the remainder of the time! You can also network with other attendees in the networking tab.

Schedule (see on Hopin as well):
2:00 PM EST (11:00 AM PST, 18:00 GMT, 5:00 AM AEDT): Doors Open/Networking
2:15: Founders Pitch
2:35 - 4:00: Founders break off into break-out rooms and attendees can move around and help one for the remainder of the time, similar to a hackathon. There is also a networking tab for other attendees to network with each other 1 on 1.
