Startup House is calling all tech interns to prove their worth this August. We are sponsoring our first venture weekend event focused entirely around the iPhone.

Venture Weekend provides the resources and networking necessary to build a company from scratch. Focusing on learning through creating, the event brings together a focused group of developers and entrepreneurs to create a product in one weekend. Leaders and innovations will emerge! The best of the best from all disciplines.

The event is a 2 day long, no-holds barred hackathon emphasizing rapidly developing and prototyping sustainable businesses and fostering innovation at all levels. During the two days, participants will choose a mobile business project presented by other participants, break into teams, and learn valuable lessons about bringing a real, valuable product to market.
