About Startup Hackathon
Test out your desire to become an entrepreneur and get the energy spurt to start out by being surrounded by like-minded people from different industries and backgrounds for an intensive weekend of brainstorming, building, and testing with real users. Cross the barrier from an innovator to an entrepreneur by acting out on your idea. With mentors helping you formulate ideas, providing guidance, and experience to help you succeed, you can take your idea and through action turn it into a business.
Meet diverse people from different industries and backgrounds that you will be working with including programmers, graphic designers, project managers, interface designers, and domain experts.
Have an idea that you haven’t worked on before and think it’s great? Pitch it in 2 minutes to your new friends.
Build a team with cross-functional talents to work on either your idea or someone else’s for the duration of the hackathon.
Learn lean Startup methodologies from experts and coaches and then rapidly validate your solution by talking to real users.
Get to work on your solution with your team and turn your idea into an actual product that solves a real problem that will solve a social problem or people will pay money for. We’ve got all the resources and tools to support you when you do need help.
The hackathon culminates with a 10-minute presentation of what you have built during the hackathon. Celebrate the end of the hackathon together with the other teams and watch them present.
