The event in '08 was great, but we have certainly made some upgrades to the model. There will be a lot more in terms of resources, prizes, and support both during and post weekend. Check out the lineup I just updated on the website!
I did Portland Startup Weekend in 2008. It was a blast! But I can't say there were any resources on hand. So, unless this event is different, the resources are provided by the attendees. But it's a good place to forge relationships with other entrepreneurial types.
