Last week, I had a chance to talk with Scott Case of Startup America about what it will take to build on the momentum created with last week’s Powder Keg event. His suggestion was that each of us need to DO SOMETHING.
So if you were waiting for an invitation to do something, here it is. This month there will be three Startup Weekend Events in Indiana, ( Bloomington, Indianapolis and Southbend).
Previous events here have brought together individuals ranging in age from 17 – 70 with skills across disciplines from developers and designers to marketing, finance and business development. Several companies have emerged, and we expect more of the same later this fall.
The Indianapolis event will be hosted at Developer town, November 16-18. The planning committee is lining up everything from the food and logistics to program elements, judges and sponsors. You can see a preliminary schedule here: http://indianapolis.startupweekend.org/
So how can you help? Any of the following would be great:
- Promote the event to your employees, customers, associates
- Come to the event :Register here: http://swindy.eventbrite.com/ Early bird pricing runs through the end of the week.
- Become a sponsor:
- Become a mentor or judge : Call me for details
- Call me and suggest something else!
