Startup Weekend San Luis Obispo
The weekend in a nutshell: On day one, anyone with an idea gets up and pitches for 30 seconds. The best ideas are then voted into the team-building phase, which involves everyone either pitching their ideas or themselves. After everyone has a team to rally with, the startups go to work making a business model, MVP (minimum viable product), and a pitch. When time runs out, all the startups battle for the judges' votes in a final round of pitching. If you do well, you could win cash, admittance into the Hatchery, and more. If you do really well, you can start an actual company!
