Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hours of idea pitching, team forming, and product building. Talented developers, designers, and business people team together to make remarkable products - by Sunday evening. Have an idea? A skill to contribute? It\'s coming this summer. Join us!
Pretty sure these guys never participated in a Startup Weekend. They would have known, you only have a minute to pitch. It’s also generally a bad move to change your idea midway. Enjoy College Humor’s sendup of the startup frenzy.
Like the startup companies we help create, success often comes down to how well you pivot. It was a difficult decision, but the Startup Weekend Corvallis event is pivoting, postponing the event until mid-Summer. Although we attracted some incredible sponsors, speakers, mentors, and judges, the same wasn’t true for ticket sales. And without a good group of participants, it’s just not Startup Weekend.
So keep an eye on the site and our Facebook page for updates. And be ready to bring the innovation this summer!
You can have more fun at Startup Weekend than the innovation, great food, and amazing speakers and mentors can provide. How? By experiencing it all for free. It’s easy. Just chose one of the following options and you’ll have a chance to win!
Option 1: Tell you friends of Facebook why you want to go to Startup Weekend Corvallis in an update. You must tag our Facebook page (which means you have to Like it first), use the the phrase “win a free ticket” and attach a link to this post. That’s it!
Option 2: Tell your followers on Twitter why you want to go to Startup Weekend Corvallis. You must use hashtag #swcorvallis, use the phrase “win a free ticket” and link to this post. That’s it!
Contest ends on Monday, May 16th at 5pm PST. From eligible entries, one person will be picked at random to attend Startup Weekend Corvallis for free. But just for participating, every eligible entrant will receive a code worth $20 off the ticket price. Can’t beat that.
Good luck and we’ll see you at Startup Weekend Corvallis!
