The Startup Weekend Schedule
While it's not required that you pitch an idea on Friday night, it's highly encouraged. Half the fun of Startup Weekend is getting out of your comfort zone and doing something that makes you a little bit nervous. Also, while you can come with friends, you’ll have the best experience if you participate in separate teams and on different ideas.
There's only one rule - Your idea can't be something that you're currently working on.
Winners receive a full Founder Institute Fellowship!
Space is limited.
