We are hosting Startup Weekend at DBC this Sept. It’s going to crazy awesome. This was an idea I had envisioned right after getting accepted to the program. I had emailed Shereef to see what he thought about the idea. Little did I know he had actually WON a Startup Weekend last year and knew the main coordinator for the Bay Area region.
We got a hazy plan together and Shereef agreed to host Startup Weekend at the DBC offices if I managed it as him nor the staff didn’t have the bandwidth.
I said ‘yes’ and figured it would be no problem. Of course I didn’t calculate the I’d have zero time once school got under way. So planning has been much slower than I’d normally have liked, but we are in a good spot and about to really ramp up.
Already about 16 boots from Summer have signed up. Sponsors are joining and a ton more planning is about to happen once I have some time after class officially ends next week.
I can’t wait to see what everyone builds in 54 hrs.
I can’t wait either. Boots… Kick ass
