7 Week Startup Kickoff Hackfest

Z80 Labs 1 News Plaza Suite 20 Buffalo, 14203 (map)

Please RSVP for this event on the Eventbrite page

Building on the success from Startup Weekend, soon a new program will be launching - 7 Week Startup. The goal is to build a startup in 7 Saturdays. There will be a kickoff on a Friday similar to Startup Weekend with pitches and formation of teams. And then the next day, the first Saturday, 8am-2pm with a speaker and brunch at 11am. Then the same for the next 6 Saturdays, with the last one having presentations/demos in the afternoon. We're hoping to kick it off on January 4th/5th

In the meantime, join us this Saturday, December 1st, for a hackfest starting at 9am, at Z80 Labs to get things rolling and to build off of the energy from Startup Weekend. You can continue working on whatever you started at Startup Weekend, or come with a new idea and make new friends, or just work on whatever you're working on these days!

For more information about 7 Week Startup, check out the website - - and please help spread the word. Follow @7weekstartup on twitter and like the page on Facebook.

Also, we have created another Google Group focused for the people building companies in Buffalo (with a tech tilt to them).

I expect recommendations and questions to be posed at all stages of the startup process.. Where should I hire a dev? How do I prototype this? What do you guys think of this idea? Anyone have a good lawyer to recommend? Who knows any good resources for PPC? etc

Please join us!
