  • FACILITATOR\n
  • FACILITATOR\nSo what is Startup Weekend all about? Startup Weekend is one of the leading catalysts for startup creation and entrepreneur education in the world. Our mission is to\neducate and inspire entrepreneurs and give them the motivation and networking they need to take the next step in creating a\nsuccessful startup company. Founded in 2007, we’ve since become a registered 501c3 non-profit and focused on expanding our model to become a global, hyper-local grassroots movement.\n\nSome quick facts:\n- Startup Weekend has helped educate & inspire over 25,000 entrepreneurs\n- They have done over 200 events in over 35 countries to date and are on track to do over 150 in 2011\n- Over 150 organizers and volunteers that are the driving force in Startup Weekend’s success\n- Over 850 ventures have been launched at Startup Weekend’s around the globe.\n

  • FACILITATOR\n\nAside from local sponsors, as a non profit Startup Weekend relies on global sponsorships and grants to be substainable and expand globally. A lot of these\nglobal sponsors offer resources to each of the attendees with products and service they will find valuable over the next 54 hours. If\nyou have not already, please pick up a Global Sponsor one pager that list out all of these resources you can use over the weekend.\n\nTwilio.com: provides a web-service API for businesses to build scalable, reliable communication apps\nTHE DEAL: $50 credit using code “ENTER TWILIO CODE HERE”\nWant more? Give more credit by sending a DM to @Twilio, or get even more by emailing help@twilio.com\n\nAmazon AWS: delivers a set of services that together form a reliable, scalable, and inexpensive computing platform “in the cloud”.\nTHE DEAL: $50 credit per team + an additional $200 credit to the 1st place team. Ask your facilitator to claim your team’s $50 credit.\n\noDesk: Allows you to hire remote contractors including Web Developers, Graphic Designers, SEO/SEM experts and more.\nTHE DEAL: $100 credit per person.

In September 2010 Startup Weekend\nreceived a grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, which empowers us to continue to scale globally and to study\nthe unpredictable science of successful entrepreneurship. To learn more about the Kauffman Foundation, check them out at\nKauffman.org.\n\nMomentum: A mentorship driven startup accelerator and a great next step to consider after Startup Weekend.\nI encourage you all to learn more about them and other startup accelerators because they are the perfect next step to startup\nsuccess after this weekend.\n
  • FACILITATOR\n\nOrganizer’s will write down the title of each pitched idea, the order number, and the name of the pitcher on a sheet of paper. Once all pitches have been finished (during the 30 minutes of networking), organizers will post each idea on a wall/window and hand out 3 blank sticknotes to each participant. - These are your votes, don’t lose them! You’ll then have 30 minutes to place your stickynotes on the ideas you’d like to see worked on over the weekend. You can vote for your own idea if you want, and you’re welcome to paste all 3 votes on 1 idea or spread them out. (Note: you don’t need to write your name on the stickynotes: it’s all anonymous.) After the 30 minutes are up we’ll take down the ideas and tally the votes to determine the top ideas.\n
