Another amazing Startup Weekend has wrapped up.  We successfully completed the world's first Startup Weekend focused on the Blue Economy, we called it Startup Weekend Blue.

The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution was the perfect location and the most gracious host of the event.

Throughout the course of the weekend we had 30 - 50 people at the event from participants, coaches, sponsors, investors and the general public.   We also had some of the wildest weather I can remember on Cape Cod, from dense fog and 50 degrees on Friday night to driving rain and 40s on Saturday to 20s on Sunday and a couple inches of snow.... insane.
