Startup Weekend Salt Lake City

Startup Weekend – Salt Lake City, Utah

UPDATE: Check out the entrepreneur roundup of all 14 products made at Startup Weekend!

For those of you that follow me on Twitter, hopefully you’ve seen me tweet about Startup Weekend. I went to my first one in Las Vegas. Although I wasn’t there for Startup Weekend alone, I got to experience it. Even a small taste of SUW was awesome. I am really excited to be a sponsor and help my pal Al Doan bring the StartupWeekend love to Utah.

Why should YOU go to Startup Weekend?

* Learn that you can start a business in a weekend. Not a year. Not a month. Not a week. A WEEKEND. It can be done. It will be done.

* Meet some great people that have a variety of skills. Designers, developers, biz dev, sales and other entrepreneurs of all shapes and sizes will be there.

* You will learn some important stuff. Technical, sales, interpersonal, startup, entrepreneurship – all of the above and then some. If you don’t learn something, ask for a refund (which won’t happen).

* Looking for a co-founder? I can’t think of a better place.

* There will be investors and other high-talent people there as mentors and even participants.

There are a bunch of other reasons that StartupWeekend is worth your time. Click here for some cool videos and more from SUW.

I’ll be there. I hope to see a bunch of you there, too. This is the kind of stuff Utah needs more of, so spread the word!

    What does the registration fee go to?

    • alex_lawrence

      It’s non-profit.  So to the venue, food and prizes.  No one makes any money on it 🙂

  • Few questions: Will their people there coding for me, teaching me how to code, setting me up with a programmer, or all three? If they are coding for me, is it all front end or will they do back end as well? Would you recommend both me and my business partner going or just one of us (if it’s for the same project) or I guess what I should be asking, will there be more than enough for both of us to do?  

    • alex_lawrence

      You pitch an idea, or they do, and then form teams based on talent (developers, designers, business people, etc.).  So no – they don’t teach you to code, nor do they do it “for you”.  You are part of a team and contribute your respective talents.  There will be all kinds of developers there (front end, back end, etc). I can’t say whether or not both of you should go.  I would, but it’s $75 each so you make the call.  Hope to see you there.

    Thanks for the info.  Sounds like it will be great and worthwhile.

      Will you be there, Drew? If so, let’s meet!

  • This was an awesome event.  I am glad I was able to be a part of it.
