Hope you’re all as excited as we are about Startup Weekend Alexandria in a few hours! Here are some final details for you:

  1. Doors open tonight at 4:00. The location is Radisson Blu Hotel ‘View Map Here‘.
  2. Join us for snacks and mingling at 4:30pm and we will kick things off officially at 6:00PM
  3. As soon as the speakers are finished, we will jump right into pitches (roughly 7:30 or sooner). we will explain how the pitching process works at 5:30, but here are a few key points:

    • Pitches are 60 seconds. We will be strict on this.
    • You may have just one chance to pitch, depending on how many people want to pitch tonight. So – pitch your best idea first.
    • No PowerPoints will be used – just your voice.

  4. We will likely go until midnight tonight.
  5. If you are a student, remember to bring your student ID.

That’s it! If you have any questions, tweet to @SWAlexandria and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

See you tonight! Get pumped!
