Event Details


Due to the high demand this event is already sold out!

We don’t have to tell you that the world is going mobile. This exclusively-sponsored Startup Weekend is a place for startups that want to develop and deploy a mobile, plus web experience for their customers. With StrongLoop and OpenShift you’ll have the tools you need to launch your next big idea.

Join Startup Weekend, OpenShift and Strongloop for a 54-hour whirlwind of pitching, business model creation, coding, designing and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of a panel of judges and an opportunity to win great prizes.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and teams organically form around the top ideas. All ideas, applications and platforms are welcome – remember that the sky is the limit!

The event will be kicked off with a workshop by StrongLoop and OpenShift by Red Hat at 5:30 PM about mobile development with Node.js as well as hosting and deployment through Openshift – the following topics will be covered:

  • How to jumpstart your coding with free access to Mobile and Node.js development and monitoring tools from StrongLoop
  • Free hosting and easy deployment of your project on Red Hat’s OpenShift platform-as-a-service
  • Pre-game coaching and mentoring from Mobile, Web and Node.js technical experts
  • A special welcome box of goodies from the sponsors for attending the workshop

As always, there are also prizes for the winning team – this is what to expect:

  • A free 1 year subscription to StrongLoop Platform, including StrongNode and StrongOps (formally NodeFly)
  • An afternoon with Shasta Venture
  • A free one-year subscription to the OpenShift by Red Hat Silver 
  • More prizes to be announced soon

About Startup Weekend: Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.  Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.  Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.  Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

Terms of Participation Agreement: It is our job to provide you with an incredible networking and learning opportunity. Our intention is that you meet some amazing people that you might actually start a company with, build relationships with coaches, and learn from your peers. The event is intended to be a collaborative forum for sharing, learning, building, and having fun. As such, by registering as a participant, you acknowledge that any ideas shared by you or anyone else over the course of the event are contributions to the overall experience and community. If you as a participant are worried about someone stealing your ideas, please reconsider your participation in the event itself or simply refrain from sharing specifics about your idea.

As a member of your startup community, you agree to to be inclusive of any and all people and their ideas. You agree to act professionally, treat everyone with respect, and treat the event facilities with proper care. You agree that you are responsible for any accidents or damages that you cause.
