This is an invitation to participate in Kansas City’s second Startup Weekend from April 16-18. Startup Weekend is one of Kansas City’s best tech community building and networking activities. Starting with just an idea, given 54 hours with your fellow talented programmers, designers and business developers from the area, what can you build to demo in front of a panel of investors and judges on Sunday night?

Think of the event as one of the best opportunities to get one of your ideas into reality. A gathering of smart talented individuals who all want to achieve similar goals. Sure some projects don’t last after the weekend, that isn’t the point. The point is to learn new skills, experiences, and meet people that you can bring into your own ventures.

This event works great for those who are able to build, design or strategize crazy cool businesses. Plan on pulling up your sleeves cause this is a “doing” event, not an “all talk” event. A limited amount of tickets are on sale now for $30 till they are all gone. A change from last year, entrepreneurial speakers will be brought in throughout the weekend to help you gain that extra connection.

Best of all, there will be some very nice cash prizes for the top three groups. And, thanks to Briarcliff, we’ll be providing $5,000 in free office rent to a lucky group!

To get you started familiarizing the event, here are few headlines from Startup Weekends from our region.

  • GiftBright Wins – Cashing in on the $2,100 prize money, the GiftBright team took an idea that only existed in Alex Gates‘ head and turned it into a real business in just one weekend!
  • Four Ventures Launched – Of the 30 ideas pitched Friday night at Startup Weekend, teams formed around the six most popular/feasible concepts.
  • PocketTails as a finalist for Microsoft BizSpark – Their idea started at Startup Weekend Indy 2008.

Tickets can be purchased at kansascity.startupweekend.com.
