Come join the RiverCity Foundry for our 2nd StartUp Weekend!  Have an idea to pitch, but don't know how to do it?  Want to flex your entrepreneurial muscles, or just come learn what it is all about?  Join us!

Startup Weekend is an intense 54-hour event powered by Google for Entrepreneurs that operates worldwide and brings together creatives, entrepreneurs, programmers, coders, developers and other business-minded individuals for a weekend of collaboration and experimentation with business ideas.

Although we don't want to limit anyone's ideas (because you never know where the next insanely great idea will come from!) we have been challeneged to try and find a financial, medical, health or military/tactical startup. But seriously, all startup ideas are welcome!
