Startup Weekend is part of a broader movement to provide support to entrepreneurs and the broader community who want to work in startups. Another great example is Founder Institute which and Meetup.com, which, while not truly focused on the needs of startups, has been a highly effective way for communities of like minded people to self-create and iterate on ideas without a formal infrastructure like a corporation or a university to help.
So I'm delighted to announce that Stamford, CT will host a Startup Weekend, March 30 to April 1 at the new Starmford Innovation Center. Anyone with an idea for a startup, or anyone with business, technical or design skills that wants to learn what its like to be part of a startup should sign up here.
