From the organizer:
Startup Weekend is an event for people who want to share their ideas and get the ball rolling. During the weekend, people will share entrepreneurial ideas about how they want to improve education of any level. After the ideas are pitched, teams form around ideas that people like the most. The rest of the weekend is for figuring out how to make this ideas come to life, which is why we need all sorts of people with different background! On the final day, teams present their work for how they will make this idea happen and judges vote a winner that will get their idea funded and created!
