Something from Nothing
Got a nice little note from Trent Hill from the first StartupWeekend Boise. His project was a social venture to support the families of kids with cancer. Although his project never had wings beyond the weekend he chose to pass the assets on to another venture for the future. Here is his little note about StartupWeekend:
Something from nothing. That’s what happens at Startup Weekend. Our team spotted an opportunity for a non-profit organization focused on connecting cancer patients and their families with cancer survivors (and their families). Within a weekend, our team constructed an interactive website, prepared the articles of non-profit organization, and had a draft of the marketing materials. Everything was in place within 48 hours to launch a new organization. Great things happen with strangers focused on a common goal.
