Startup Weekend returns to Seattle

Startup Weekend is coming to Seattle in the New Year and this time around it takes place on Febuary 6-8th at Google’s offices in Fremont. This will be the second Startup Weekend in Seattle – the last one happened in January 2007 at Adobe’s offices.

Startup Weekend recruits a highly motivated group of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more to a 54 hour event that builds communities, companies and projects.

Founded in 2007 by Andrew Hyde, the weekend is a concept of a conference focusing on learning by creating. It is known for its quick decisions, ‘out of the box’ thinking, unique facilitation technique and letting the founders show what they can do. The program has already met with success in Boulder, Toronto, New York, Hamburg, Houston, West Lafayette, Boston, DC and more.

Tickets to the Feburary event are $40 and participants with a variety of skills can sign up – everything from software developers (including architects and system administrators), designers, public relations people, user experience experts, legal, business development people, and project managers.
