We’re planning a really special Friday Mixer for Startup Weekend Bay Area Alumni and Friends of Bizspark on Friday 17th August. Individuals and Teams that have participated in SW Bay events and Mega events at Microsoft are welcome to come and network with other startups, mentors, investors and partners. We’ll have some fantastic successful entrepreneurs and awesome mentors for you to meet and bounce your ideas off. Those teams working on a product or service, can also be considered for a super special Pitch Spotlight. These will give you the microphone for one minute (actually, we’ll make it 90 seconds) to address the 200+ audience and tell us about your cool idea. Where did it start? What is your vision? Where is it now?
Here’s the deal: you can sign up to attend on 17th and mix. You can sign up to attend, mix and have a spotlight. And you can also sign up to attend a workshop on Design, UX and UI (happening 4pm to 6pm just before Drinks start). Come in early and hear from some of our top Windows 8 guys on Metro and why it rocks.
4:00 – 6:00pm - Meet Windows 8
6:00pm – 6:30pm - Mix it up a little
6:30 - 7:30pm - Pitch For Pride
7:30 – 9:00pm - Mix it up a lot

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.
