Are you new to Startup Weekend? Still trying to decide if you should attend?
Startup Weekend brings together people from all different skill sets and backgrounds. If you’re a developer, a marketer, a strategist, a designer, a student–you’re all valuable during Startup Weekend. Not only will you create a viable business during the course of a weekend, there are prizes that you can win too, including a Kindle Fire HDX from Amazon!
Don’t take it from me, though. I’ve reached out to the winners of past Startup Weekend events in Cincinnati to get feedback on their experience:
“At Startup Weekend, I learned, first and foremost, how possible it is to get high quality work done with a short amount of time. I think it even made us more creative, given the constraints. I developed my skills in market research, developing an online survey as well as ‘man on the street’ interviews. It was great to have such a talented team pushing you through the weekend, and I learned tons from them as well.”

“At worst you can gain a little practice; but at best you may have just found your next team member, mentor or co-founder. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?”
— Brinda, PBC
“We ended up with a great experience because of the AWESOME mentors that came around. We really got to flush out our business model, and it was great to talk about our idea to others that haven’t heard it before.”
— Colin, Canopi
“Prepare, but perfection isn’t necessary, passion is! I had no idea what I was in for, but being open to this made it all the more delightful. We built the MVP framework with intro screenshots, a brand and a first draft of a business canvas. I learned a tremendous amount about start up mentality and resourcing!”
