Startup Weekend will be coming to San Diego this summer 2010. We’re looking forward to inspiring Southern California entrepreneurs and helping them work together to create great companies. The weekend will be a 54-hour event (Friday night through Sunday night) in which a highly motivated group of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, and graphic artists come together to create new business ventures and projects in the spirit of the startup lifestyle.
The participants who attend Startup Weekend begin by deciding what to tackle over the weekend and then spend the next few days building these ideas into a map for execution. On Sunday night teams formed during the weekend launch the businesses and pitch to the group and a panel of judges that will give valuable feedback. Attendees are responsible for bringing a high level of passion and dedication to the table and walk out with the beginnings of a potential company — all in a weekend.
Startup Weekend provides an unprecedented level of networking, team-building, and learning for its attendees and their communities — sometimes a company emerges, sometimes one doesn’t. Some companies even go on to produce revenue or get seed funding. No matter what comes out of the weekend, attendees leave with invaluable experience, insight, resources, and knowledge — and not to mention new friends with shared interests.
