I recently attended the NYC Startup Weekend. Initially I was reluctant thinking it would be a waste of time, not productive etc, but I was surprised. It was an awesome experience, and after the chaos of Friday night, Saturday and Sunday were exciting days when I worked in a team of 5 people to come up with an interesting concept, and also picked up some Android/Java programming.
Our idea “Sound Spot” got a shout out from the Technoverse Blog. Thank You!!
Overall the quality of pitches was excellent and it was a learning experience through and through. Everything thing from what VCs look for, to how to appeal to an audience, to a completely new platform for development. I highly recommend attending one if possible.
Besides all this there was excellent food at the event (surprisingly I must admit). It was served by Organique. So good!!!
