Hey San Diego Startup Weekenders!
It's my great pleasure to launch the first (of many to come) Pre-Startup Weekend Bootcamp in San Diego! The purpose of the bootcamp is to give everyone coming to Startup Weekend the best tools possible to help you succeed.
First, we want to give participants the scoop on what it takes to maximize your experience during the weekend, so we'll be doing a introductory session on how to prepare your idea, and yourself for the weekend - including how to make a great pitch!
After the short intro session, attendees will divide into two tracks:
Tech Track: Thanks to our Platinum Sponsor, Qualcomm Labs Inc., participants will have access to their new ContextBETA SDK that allows iOS & Android developers the ability to make their application contextually aware through low-power geo-fencing, interest sensing, and image recognition. There will be $500 prize to the top team to take advantage their ContextBETA SDK. For more information and to pre-register for the ContextBETA SDK by Qualcomm Labs, please visit http://context.qualcommlabs.com
Lean Track: For the non-technical participants, Bryan Hall will be leading a great session on applying Lean methodology to your startup. Building great customer development skills are critical to helping your startup succeed. Before you dive into during startup weekend, attend this primer to learn more of the basics of the Lean approach.
This event is open to those who will be attending the San Diego Startup Weekend 6/15-6/17. Join us at this pre-event to maximize your experience! Any pre-event questions can be directed to @bryathlon
Date: Sunday, June 10th
