Capital Community College students, including members of the Rotaract Club and Latin American Student Association, will have an opportunity to participate in “Startup Weekend Hartford: Education” on September 26-28.
Start Up Weekend, to be held at the Northeast Utilities CL&P Building on Sheldon Street in Hartford, is a 54 hour event that brings together Connecticut designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains “to do amazing things”. According organizers the annual weekend is an opportunity “to transform your education ideas into action in 54 hours. Find the right people with complementary skills and the passion to build an education product in one weekend. Design for learning, conduct user tests, receive coaching from experienced education designers & industry professionals and win prizes that will help take your idea to the next level.”
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback!
