#SWAKL 2017 STARTUP WEEKEND AUCKLAND Startup Weekends are 54-hour long events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, build products and launch startups! Teams go from an idea scrawled on a napkin to a working prototype and maybe even paying customers, all within a single weekend. Startup Weekends are a global phenomenon with events being held in 700+ cities across the world; in New Zealand alone, events have been held everywhere from Auckland to Invercargill. MAKING IDEAS HAPPEN BY STARTUP WEEKEND AUCKLAND TEAM 5-7 MAY 2017 We begin on Friday night with open-mic pitches, where participants get 60 seconds to pitch their ideas to the crowd and try to recruit the best talent in the room! Teams form around the most exciting/viable ideas, and spend the rest of the night planning for the battle ahead. The whole of Saturday and much of Sunday) is a mad dash to build, validate, pivot, polish and test your Minimal Viable Product (MVP). The weekend culminates with a pitch-night where teams present their MVP to a panel of judges, guests and fellow participants. At the end of it all, a winner is crowned and everyone celebrates over a few casual drinks and gets a chance to network before saying goodbye! Getting the low down about startup weekend | 5-7 MAY 2017 Many people want to be entrepreneurs, but find it hard to commit on top of study/work/family commitments.
