Tahoe Startup Weekend is coming to Truckee March 7-9, 2014.
If you're not familiar with Startup Weekends, here's a description straight from the website:
"Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups."
It's a true learn-by-doing event. On the first night, budding entrepreneurs pitch their startups to the group, and the crowd selects the most viable ideas. From there, teams form and work together to produce a prototype by the weekend's end.
The organization has held a series of happy hours leading up to the event, and I attended the one in Truckee on Tuesday. It was a great crowd of people, who are genuinely interested in sharing their ideas and experience with others.
