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. A Maker Edition event celebrates the maker movement. It will combine the typical Startup Weekend web-based format with the rapid prototyping possibilities that have been made possible in recent years by technologies such as desktop 3D printing, laser-cutting, and microcontrollers. Designers, developers, business people and makers will collaborate to create a working prototype and a business plan over an intense, 54 hour period. The final prototypes will be judged on business model and customer validation as well as their technical execution and design.
