A couple of weeks ago I mentioned an exciting opportunity for entrepreneurs. Well, here it is. There’s a project called Startup Weekend that travels to cities around the globe. If we can bring it to Memphis, locals with an entrepreneurial spirit will be able to attend the Startup Weekend conference and build a tech business from start to finish in a mere 54 hours. Attendees will then all own equal shares in the new business (with Startup Weekend owning 5%).
This is a great opportunity to create something and work with some of the brightest minds in the city. Even if the conference doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, please vote for Startup Weekend to come to Memphis anyway and forward it to anyone you know who might be interested in starting a tech business. If it does sound like something you’d want to participate in, check the about page and the FAQ page for more information.
