There’s an event coming up that is already sold out but would be a blast to attend in the future. It’s called Startup Weekend. Essentially, you get together with a group of people and in 3 days, start up a company. Everyone of the “founders” gets stock in the startup.
I don’t know just how the ideas are generated or how they decide on what gets chosen or how it’s put into play (I’ve never been to one before) but it looks like a great time.
It takes place in other cities all over the country. Check it out, even if you’re not in Seattle and see if you can sign up before it sells out! It’s a great opportunity to be a part of something that could become big. Make your mark in the world!
