Summary
<p><span style="font-family: Helvetica; font-size: 12px;">Startup Weekend is a intense 54 hour event bringing together brilliant<br />tech minds (developers, designers, marketers, etc.) together to create a<br />company (or as many as the community wants) from concept to launch! The<br />best and brightest people together in a local office space to select the<br />concept, break into teams, and develop the product, marketing and revenue<br />model. Sixteen ideas are refined until a group of four or five make the<br />final cut.<br /><br />The participants come from all walks of technology, so they get to<br />experience what needs to be completed and considered in starting up a<br />company, something they don't usually get in their normal 9-to-5 jobs.<br />This experience will allow to see their role in the company process in a<br />different light, and many of the participants are entrepreneurial<br />themselves, so they might learn from the weekend and start their own<br />companies.<br /></span></p>
