Build up your blockchain based project in 54 hours
While everyone around you is talking about leveraging blockchain technology to raise chickens, you realize that blockchain is not merely a technology behind most crypto currencies. Yes, blockchain's potential is beyond finance and payment. It could have a revolutionary impact on almost every fields including education, healthcare, agriculture, etc.
Startup Weekend Blockchain edition in Seattle provides you an opportunity to sit down with top professionals and blockchain enthusiasts for a whole weekend and come up with great blockchain based projects. You could create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs and blockchain experts, all in one weekend.
What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
