Hello, thanks and welcome. \nHow are you all doing? Good!\nI know you&#x2019;re all here to see Peter, but I just wanted to take a few moments to talk about Startup Weekend. First, a bit about me >\n

This is how I can tell how well the marketing team are doing :p\nWho&#x2019;s heard of Startup Weekend?\nHow many people have been to a SW?\nWho&#x2019;s already bought their tickets for this weekend?\nVirgins or Experts?\n> So, what is Startup Weekend, what can you expect? >\n
SW is MASSIVE. \nAll of this, and, btw, we&#x2019;re a non-profit.\n> What happens at a Startup Weekend? >\n
Here&#x2019;s our motto.\nBut is it really possible? Yes it is.\n> Here&#x2019;s how we do it >\n
Strangers,\nIdea Pitch, \nVote,\nForm teams, \nBrainstorm\nMentors and coaches from all over the world help you work, learn\nBuild products.\nPresent to jury.\nCelebrate and party like a startup.\n> Sound like hard work? It is! >\n
but it&#x2019;s worth it. \nWe&#x2019;re changing people&#x2019;s lives every weekend.\n\nFeeling more productive than ever, sense of achievement, incredible pride, awesome team spirit and a little bit of tiredness.\n\nKosovo has the honour of being one of the &#x2018;youngest&#x2019; countries with a very young population.
