Start me up.
This a good time to be a startup in Sri Lanka. This Week In Startups is shooting a video here (deadline April 10th) and now they’re having a Hackathon at Orion City (where Virtusa is). On Saturday morning you can pitch ideas and develop teams to execute. By Sunday evening you’ll be pitching products to industry leaders and investors. It’s pretty cool and I think I’ll register to go. You can register here.
Here’s some deets:
Venue : Orion City, Colombo 09, Sri Lanka.
Date : Sat, 24th of March 2012 at 8.00AM. (NOT 8:05 AM)
Period : 36 straight hours!
What is it?: An intense 36 hour session in which teams of like minded individuals share ideas, work together and make way to building a start-up.
Who is it for?: Start-up enthusiasts, developers, designers, marketers, managers or just about anyone with a idea for a good product or business. You can join the event as a developer, designer, marketer or all rounder.
Why should I attend?: Because its just exciting and fun! :) This will enable you in validating your ideas among start-up enthusiast’s, entrepreneurs and tech investors in the country. Most of all it would be a event of actually doing things rather than talking. It is guaranteed that you will learn more in one weekend than you would in a month. After all its free to attend!
