Join with 99 other participants at Vacasa for Portland Startup Weekend GOV on May 19-21, a 54 hour experience, like a marathon for entrepreneurs. It is a valuable opportunity to learn from industry recognized mentors and start a business or non-profit that can make money and create sustainable social impact!
Skills and techniques applied include human centered design, prototyping, lean canvas business modeling, marketing research and customer validation.
Enjoy incredible food and chill with others in water cooler moments. Lots of opportunity to interact with others and gain new perspective and awareness.
Startup weekend is organized by people like you who have experienced startup weekend and returned to volunteer and give back to the community.
With Startup Weekend GOV, we’ll provide focus groups in the building on Saturday so that teams don’t have to go too far to do interviews and customer validation.
We’ll also provide several Saturday bootcamps leading up to Startup Weekend for participants to learn the additional tools and techniques ahead of time like small group facilitation, problem solving techniques, marketing research skills.
Users who are not familiar with specific tech skills like slack, trello, google docs can get training ahead of time as well.
Now breathe and meditate on the revolutionary thought that social sustainability and capitalism are not mutually exclusive.
