If you’re the kind of person that hates panels and speeches, this one’s for you.
Next month Philadelphia will hold its first Startup Weekend, a nationwide program that packs a group of programmers, designers and business people in a room and challenges them to create a functioning company in just a weekend. Philly’s edition will be at Indy Hall on January 28th – 30th.
“There have been some startups that have come out of Startup Weekend, but the main goal is just to actually do something,” says Brad Oyler who, along with Cherif Habib is one the event’s organizers.
Past Startup Weekends have created over 700 startups, including some that have reached an exit.
According to Oyler, 40 of the 65 slots for the weekend are taken. If you’d like to participate, register here. Student tickets are $40, while general admission $75.
