We are excited to sponsor this weekend’s StartupWeekend in Austin, taking place at CoSpace! We are thrilled to be a part of this entrepreneurial event and look forward to attending and contributing to its success.
Startup Weekend is a combination hackathon and business plan competition. It is comprised of an intense 54 hours, starting with pitches on Friday night and wrapping up with presentations and live demos on Sunday evening. The demo’s are judged by a panel of some of our favorite local Austin entrepreneurs, including Jason Cohen, Josh Baer, Jonas Lamis, and Kip McClanahan.
Startup Weekend was founded in 2007 by Andrew Hyde of TechStars, and is now run by Mark Nager, Clint Nelsen, and Franck Nouyrigat. The event has already met with success in over 52 cities, 12 countries, and growing! Read more about Startup Weekend here…
A few of our engineers, including @mrflip and @jessecrouch, will attend the event and contribute code. Any participants that are interested in implementing data from our API will have free usage of it for the weekend. We will also provide discount codes for use after the event.
We hope to see you there!
