About Startup Weekend

Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur? The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success? Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011.

The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 200 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.

Although registration is closed, there's usually a waiting list as people drop out or have their registrations cancelled.

For example, anyone who registers as a developer but isn't actually a developer will have their registration cancelled.

FYI, I'm not one of the organizers of this event. All the information is at http://la.startupweekend.org

Yes, it looks like quite a fantastic meetup -- but not Drupal related.

I'd prefer it removed, edit: or at least not cross posted to soooo many groups. -- seems its only posted to a couple groups with reallly long descriptions ;-)

From the "post event" page:

Commercial events and/or non-Drupal events may only be listed in the Training or Related events categories. These events must have a clear relationship to Drupal. jQuery training is okay, SXSW is okay, Cubs game is not.

This is already listed as "Related event (i.e. not Drupal-specific)" so I think the event announcement is properly tagged.

Drupal-based startups have been a contender at this event, so it's related in my opinion. You say po-tah-to, I say po-tay-to. Can't we all just get along?
