In the Thick of Things: Startup Weekend Boulder






Startup Weekend Boulder 5 is going on as I write this. I'm actually blogging from the TechStars Bunker where the event is being held. The din of the 8 teams busily working on designs, demos and pitches surrounds me. For so much intense work going it's actually pretty calm and quiet.

If you don't happen to know, Andrew Hyde created Startup Weekend over a midnight conversation with the intent to get smart entrepreneurial types in together to create a small project over a weekend. It's now grown to over 233 events as a 54 hour high intensity marathon focused on building a web or mobile app that could turn into a viable startup.

I'll be writing more after the event ends. For now you can get a glimpse into some of the teams and watch a mid-event update from Jon Rossi, one of the organizers of Startup Weekend Boulder.
