1 more wk to Singapore @StartupWeekend! Excited?

. That’s the new tagline of the global 54-hour startup-building movement, Startup Weekend . Startup Weekend was founded in 2007 and brings together a diversity of people interested in meeting others to work on ideas, build actual prototypes and build startups. The first Startup Weekend in Singapore was held last year during the Halloween weekend with about 45 attendees, 20 ideas pitched , with a final 6 teams that were formed. At the end of the 54 hours, all 6 teams pitched to the whole group plus the mentors and judges and a winner was decided by the mentors and judges. (That winning team happened to include two people from SGE – Isaac and myself!) This end April, Startup Weekend is happening in Singapore again. Find out more about why you should consider joining
