iWeekend is an intensive and innovative experience that brings together talented entrepreneurs and professionals of different profiles to select 3 ideas and bring these ideas to reality by collaboratively developing a business plan and a prototype, all in one weekend.
Although I do think it would not be easy to organize an event like iWeekend because it’s so different from other startups event where people just need come to talk. Still, I really love the idea behind it. A good startup is initiated by a good idea, a successful startup is executed by a good team. However, for people who has the idea and want to do a startup, usually what stops them grow the idea is they can not find the team. As iWeekend organizers believe, there is no better way to network and meet other restless minds than by working with them side by side for two full days.
Also reads from iWeekend’s official site, the mission of iWeekend is to
- Promote the culture of entrepreneurship in new technologies
- Foster a practical methodology of knowledge sharing and learning-by-doing, and
- Help talented entrepreneurs to get started in 2 days flat
So if you are or want to be entrepreneurs (Note: English is the preferred language in the event, which I hope it can change it next time.), and wish to meet professionals and freelancers who may take on the challenge and collaborate in your project, iWeekend sounds the ideal event you may consider to go. The dates are 19th Nov – 21st Nov. You can apply for it here.
