Startup Weekend for Veterans and friends (Oslo)/ Apr 26-28
Friday, April 26, 2013 at 5:30 PM - Sunday, April 28, 2013 at 8:30 PM (CEST)
Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Do you see any similarities in taking risk as a veteran and as an entrepreneur in a business environment? Do you enjoy working and would like to work with buddies from the past?
Startup Weekend for Veterans is coming to Oslo and this is the first of its kind in Europe.
We want to empower and inspire veterans to move forward to create their own jobs and work together. We have taken the task upon us the transitioning from the dedicated and resourceful VETERAN to becoming an entrepreneur and surviving in a business arena.
This is your new mission and you will have to bootstrap.

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.
