2nd Annual Euro Seattle Startup Weekend
Jan 23-25, at amazon.com, Seattle
EuroSeattle Startup Weekend is back…
Don't miss this opportunity to trade your European expats routine for an exciting new experience, meet new people and have fun! All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, website creation, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. EuroSeattle adds a new twist by bringing expats from Europe and all around the world into the equation to mingle with their Seattleite counterparts for a win-win experience! Whether this experience is to launch a startup, participate to the creation of one, make connections, meet future partners or friends, or gain entrepreneurship experience, you are guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups! For details, information and registration go to the EuroSeattle Startup Weekend website, visit on FB page and LinkedIn, or follow on Twitter.
BABC-PNW is a proud supporter of EuroSeattle Startup Weekend.
