Startup Weekend Tech for Good documentary
More on the event and winning team
Before my first Startup Weekend, I knew little about the startup world. I thought it was a place of modern typefaces, brushed chrome, genius Steve Jobs types, and characters like Tom Haverford, the trend-obsessed serial entrepreneur played by Aziz Ansari on Parks and Rec. Afterward, my worldview changed.
It all started with a warning — what not to do if your idea is picked at Startup Weekend. Steve Hoffman, captain of Founders Space, had some advice in his Friday night keynote for the participants of last month’s Tech for Good Startup Weekend in San Francisco.
