The Startup Hackathon, a first for the group, is a cross between a hackathon and a business plan competition. “Startup Hackathon bridges the development focus of a hackathon and the business processes of building a successful startup,” organizers write. “Learn the basics of building a successful startup while working on an interesting coding project.”
The event, open exclusively to women, will take place on two days — Saturday, May 20 and Sunday, May 21. It’s scheduled to be held at The Iron Yard’s campus downtown. With attendees arriving with an idea, pitching, then forming teams and heading off to work on their ideas, it sounds a little like the semi-regular Startup Weekend events, only focused specifically on female developers and would-be entrepreneurs, of course.
“If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to succeed in a startup, this is the place to learn!” organizers promise.
