I have a passion for building startup communities and am in a time in my life where I am able to dedicate a certain amount of time to invest in an experience where I know I will not only grow personally but can help Startup Weekend continue to achieve your vision. If this proposal is something within the scope of Startup Weekend, I look forward to discussing this more with you. 808-285-3483 Startup Weekend @Joey_Aquino MissionTuesday, November 8, 2011
