This Startup Weekend specifically focuses on innovations, (technology or not), that will help to make the world a more environmentally friendly place. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback!
You may pitch a winning idea, found a company, find cofounders and talented collaborators, learn new skills far outside your usual 9-to-5, or all of the above!
