I’m excited to announce that I’m one of the organizers of the first-ever Startup Weekend Evansville, which will be held at the University of Southern Indiana on the last weekend in February 2012.
Startup Weekends are 54-hour-long events, lasting from Friday night to Sunday night, where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startup businesses! These are hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if their startup ideas are viable, and, if so, get the right help they need to launch their startups quickly. On average, half of a Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical backgrounds, and half have business backgrounds.
One of my passions is helping entrepreneurs and other business owners get the legal obstacles out of their way so they can pursue their dreams, and partnering with them to help their businesses contribute to our community and to the larger society.
If you have an idea for a business, and aren’t sure how to get it off the ground, or if you’re looking to team up with other bright and motivated individuals to help create some exciting new business opportunities here in the Evansville area, sign up now for Evansville’s first-ever Startup Weekend. You won’t want to miss it!
