A Team, an Idea and 54 Hours: Startup Weekend Kansas City
Ask any business expert, "Is it possible to launch a company in under 54 hours?" and most of them will a) laugh and shrug off the question like it's a joke, or b) stare at you and shake their head. But ask the founders of Startup Weekend if it can be done, and they'll confidently say, "Why not?"
Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate and empower individuals, teams and communities. With this goal in mind, Startup Weekend puts together 54-hour events that focus on building a web or mobile application over the course of just one weekend. And it's back this year for a fifth time in Kansas City on April 13, 2012.
Join Midwest entrepreneurs Adam Coomes (Salt), Royce Haynes (Legal Sonar), Danny O'Neill (The Roasterie) and many others for Startup Weekend Kansas City on April 13-15 at Union Station. As a participant, you will have the chance to collaborate with other software developers, graphic designers and business people to build and launch a business in just 54 hours.
Prove the so-called "business experts" wrong and see your idea become a reality at Startup Weekend Kansas City. Register today!
