StartupWeekend.com

While surfing Ustream.tv a few weeks back I began watching one of their featured shows Startup Weekend. StartupWeekend.com is a fairly simple idea:

Have you ever wondered what a group of highly talented and motivated people could accomplish in a weekend? Could they start a company from concept to completion?

Good question. The first StartupWeekend took place in Boulder, Colorado. 68 attendees worked for three straight days to develop VoSnap.com. Unfortunately VoSnap.com was not completed in time and has yet to launch.

Regardless of this setback, the StartupWeekend team made a valiant attempt at doing what most companies spend months or even years on. To date they have 6 more startup weekends planned all over the country. I look forward to seeing where these weekends will take us!
