Photos from the last Startup Weekend
Startup Weekend March 23, 2012
Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.
Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.
For more than 13 years, the Charlottesville Venture Group (CVG), a Virginia non-profit corporation, has been providing high quality educational programs for the benefit of area entrepreneurs, innovators and corporations.
