Startup Weekend to Columbia!

Despite the financial crisis, the whole world seems to organize “startup weekends” like crazy. The initiative does not make any policy prescriptions; it is purely a hands-on experience where anybody and everybody is welcome to engage in the “manically lazy” labor of entrepreneurship. The point is to offer a creative setting in which one can develop ideas into business plans or businesses.

Indeed, the organizers/sponsors promise wannabe-entrepreneurs a great opportunity within “risk-free environments where everyone is expected to roll up their sleeves and dive into the exhilarating world of startups.”

Each event lasts for 54 hours and aims to let “developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups.” The startup weekend comes to Columbia, Mo. on September 30th – October 2nd 2011. The immense and intense entrepreneurial activity will all take place throughout the weekend at Museao on 3500 Buttonwood Drive.
