Startup Weekends are weekend-long events where developers, designers, marketers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, forms teams, build products and launch startups!

The Startup Weekend will begin with open-mic 60-second pitches Friday night that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable concepts.
Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on customer development, validating their ideas and building prototypes and website wireframes with the help of experienced coaches.
