Have you heard about Startup Weekend Cedar Rapids this weekend? I am participating and you should as well!
Startup Weekend is a grassroots movement of entrepreneurs learning the basics of founding startups & launching ventures. Come to the Cedar Rapids edition on February to March 2 to share ideas, form teams, & launch startups. Be part of the Creative Corridor. It is a great way to “test out startup life” and expand on your skills/ideas in a way not requiring to quit your current gig. I’m happy that my company, McNary Marketing & Design LLC, is among a wonderful collection of sponsors.
The full schedule, the panel of judges, mentors, and the list of sponsors is located at http://cedarrapids.startupweekend.org. There are already around 50 people signed up, so you’ll be among some awesome folks. Registration is available right now through Eventbrite.
This is going to be a fun weekend of ideas, building cool stuff, and friendship. Oh, and did I mention there will be food (including bacon happy hour!) throughout the weekend?
I’ll see you there! Let’s build something amazing here in the heartland of Iowa.
