Startup Weekend is all about the educational experience of learning by doing. Here at Startup Weekend Amsterdam, we like to try to push the boundaries of what is possible to bring our attendees the most awesome experience ever.
This year, we’ve pulled out all the stops and arranged a Triple Whammy Dutch exclusive: not one, but three pre-event workshops in the week running up to the main event:
The first, is a Developer bootcamp, and has been made possible by Google and the Dutch GTug. We hope this will give some of the developers an insight into how Google technology can enable them to build in a quick and dirty fashion over the weekend event.
The second, is a dual focus workshop covering Ideation and Business modeling. Some people think they don’t have ideas, some people are searching for the perfect idea, and some people are daunted by the prospect of creating a business model. This workshop will help these folks to realise their capabilities.
Lastly, the third workshop is for Pitch Practice Night. If you’ve never stood on a stage, don’t know one end of the microphone from the other, or feel faint at the thought of pitching to 150 people, it’s good to be able to practice in a safe environment. That’s what we’re bringing. Hugs are optional.
Best of all, because of our fantastic sponsors, we’ve been able to bring these events to our ticket holders for FREE. Thanks to Google NL for hosting the Developer Bootcamp and thanks to Bouncespace for hosting both of the other workshops. Without the support of these companies, not only could we not bring these events to you, but the Dutch Startup Community would be a significantly poorer place.
