It’s no secret, that a ton of startups begin their lives as side projects. All with dreams of someday transitioning to a day job. A going concern. Some make it. But most of those ideas never make the leap out of hobby-dom.
Why? Because it’s one person with an idea. But—lucky for you—that’s not going to happen to your project. Because you’ve got Startup Weekend Portland.
Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event which focuses on building a web or mobile application which could form the basis of a credible business over the course of a weekend. The weekend brings together people with different skillsets – primarily software developers, graphics designers and business people – to build applications and develop a commercial case around them.
And it’s all happening here in Portland, October 14-16, hosted at Urban Airship.
That means you’ve got one more weekend to get your idea figured out. And to plan your pitch. So you can wow the crowd, build a team, build a product, and make that startup into a reality. Well, and of course, step 4: profit.
Space is limited. So act soon. You can grab your spot by registering for Startup Weekend Portland today. And if you use the discount code “INTEL”? You’ll get the whole weekend for $50. That’s a wise investment right there.
