Official Startup Weekend NYC website
When: June 11 - 13
Where: Courant Institute @ NYU
Startup Weekend NYC is a weekend hack session to build and launch startups. On Friday night individuals pitch ideas for new ventures, teams form around the best ideas and then work over the weekend to develop and launch a prototype on Sunday. We bring out a panel of established entrepreneurs and angel investors to preview teams' final presentations on Sunday. This year AOL Ventures has committed to funding the best concept that comes out of the weekend, and we've got some great speakers stopping by the event including the CTO of Meetup.com (this hasn't been announced yet!). We're also a part of InternetWeek this year.
The majority of the attendees are developers and designers, but last year we had only five or six WordPress users in the crowd. What a shame. It would be cool to see some NYC WordPress Meetup users come out, pitch some ideas, and launch a few web apps. So we're throwing this group a discount code "wpnyc" in hopes to bring some more of you out. The code is good for $10 off.
If you want more info or if your sold and want to sign up head over to http://nyc.startupwee.... Be sure to use the "wpnyc" discount code mentioned above if you sign-up.
