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. Maker Edition will be held from June 28th-30th at Makerhaus in Fremont, Seattle. This event celebrates the maker movement. It will combine the typical Startup Weekend web-based format with the rapid prototyping possibilities that have been made possible in recent years by technologies such as desktop 3D printing, laser-cutting, and microcontrollers. Designers, developers, business people and makers will collaborate to create a working prototype and a business plan over an intense, 54 hour period. The final prototypes will be judged on business model and customer validation as well as their technical execution and design.
