Build a Startup in 54 Hours

Are you up to the challenge?

Join a team and take a startup from concept to reality in just two days

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. Each event challenges organically-formed teams of attendees in a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders and venture capitalists with opportunity for critical feedback.

Kirkland will host its inaugural Startup Weekend event from November 9-11, 2012 at the Woodmark Hotel in Carillon Point. No talk, all action. Are you up for the challenge?
