A Beta version of 7 Week Startup begins January 11th and 12th. Apologies for the late notice - It's a beta version because we'd like to fine-tune things for the first official launch, scheduled to begin the week after the 2nd Buffalo Startup Weekend March 1-3
Friday the 11th will be a free happy hour (read: free beer) at Z80 Labs from 4:30pm to 7pm. Come with a team already formed, or pitch an idea and try to recruit a team. We'll mingle and network, and then there will be time for each founder to announce their project and whether they're looking for (more) team members. Pitches start at 6pm, and the event is free so if you have an idea or want to possibly join a team, come!
The program continues the next morning (Saturday the 12th, 9am at Z80 Labs) where the real work begins. Bring a laptop and be prepared to start hacking on your startup! There's a small fee of $20 per person for the 7 week program to help provide donuts, coffee, and lunch each week. The first 6 weeks will go to 2pm officially, through doors will remain open until 5pm. Then, the final Saturday will end with presentations/demos in the afternoon and wrap up around 5pm.
