The Startup Weekend team lists 8 of dozens of possible reasons why you should come to a Startup Weekend here. Here are some of our own comments:
- Build your network: Have you taken a look at our speakers, judges or mentors? There’s a smorgasbord of entrepreneurs, angels, VCs and awesome people! It’s a who’s who of people you should absolutely know, right here from our county!
- Co-Founder Dating: We all know it’s not just about the idea – it’s about the team. What skill are you missing from your dream team? Biz-dev, marketing, developer, designer? We have nearly 100 participating entrepreneurs! One of them may be just what you’ve been looking for.
- Actually launch a business: Here’s your chance to to validate that idea you’ve been mulling, build a team and make it real! Also, you didn’t hear it from us, but some of our investor guests keep an eye on early stage ventures.
- Get face time with thought leaders: The speakers and mentors have decades of experience at being phenomenally successful. Ask them for advice, that’s exactly why they are here!
- Save money & get stuff: There are some great freebies and discounts. For example, by participating in Startup Weekend your startup becomes entitled to a full year of Zendesk. That’s roughly a $3400 value! and that’s not even including the awesome pizza!
