Startup Weekend NYC - WeWork Lounge Soho


Is it possible to launch a successful startup from scratch in only 54 hours? Well... Yes! Of course! Thanks to the entrepreneur Cyndi from Content Ramen, I have the opportunity to join the team as a volunteer in Startup Weekend NYC.

Startup Weekend NYC brings entrepreneurs and supporters together and teaches them how to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch companies, all during a 54-hour crash-course weekend. Sounds crazy right? Well, but it's possible and since some of the ideas have come true and turns out to be some real companies.

The Startup Weekend in New York City is on its final day in WeWork Lounge, Soho, and it’s been quite a journey! Definitely exciting and I can't wait for the final results!















Did you know Google is the main sponsor of Startup Weekend? According to Techcrunch, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged $250,000 to the Startup Weekend EDU series of events, the dedicated education-focused vertical within the non-profit. Finally, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, turned Startup Weekend into the one of its affiliates.
