The weekend wraps up with teams presenting their startup to local entrepreneurial leaders with an opportunity for critical feedback.It’s not about the prize but it helps.
What they say:
Startup weekend gives you the valuable insight into how to make an idea succeed or fail fast, as Nick Drewe Co-founder of Churn.tv and Startup Weekend 2013 winner explains:
"Startup Weekend can be exhausting, but it's a tonne of fun, I'd recommend anyone with an idea, or an entrepreneurial itch get involved. Working in a team with a range of skills, I learned more about product development and getting a project off the ground in just one weekend than I could have in 6 months by myself."
What are you waiting for?

About Startup Weekend
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
