Startup Weekend is coming to Chicago in early April and we here at TECH cocktail are pretty excited about it. I am sure most of you know what Startup Weekend is all about or at least have heard of it. For those that have been living under a rock here is the pitch:
Startup Weekend is a intense 54 hour event bringing together brilliant tech minds (developers, designers, marketers, etc.) together to create a company (or as many as the community wants) from concept to launch! You can read more about what the event is here .
Startup Weekend is a fun and highly interactive weekend that encourages technology entrepreneurship and we are psyched to see what the Chicago team can bring to the table. The Chicago event will also be part of a larger event in that many cities will be holding Startup Weekends on April 3 – 5. This should add to the buzz and make things a little competitive between cities.
Thanks to the ITA for hostin Startup Weekend Chicago at their Tech Nexus space located at 200 South Wacker Drive – 15th Floor.
Oh, one more thing, if anyone is interested in helping to sponsor this event please let me know (eric [at] techcocktail dot com).
Hope to see you all at Startup Weekend Chicago on April 3rd!
