Registration is open for Indianapolis' Sixth Startup Weekend, an intense 54-hour brainstorming and business-building event that will be held April 8-10 at the Purdue Research Park of Indianapolis. The program, which is part of a global movement, typically results in the creation of several new businesses. It will culminate with a presentation on Sunday, April 10, 2011 as company founders have an opportunity to pitch their ideas for prizes and potential investors.
During Startup Weekend, a diverse group of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing leaders, graphic artists and others gather to create and develop innovative new products, projects and companies. Many times, a viable company emerges, such as Pocket Tales, a company that turns reading books into an interactive game; ShoutNow Inc., an automated messaging system; StatsSquared Inc., a Twitter analytic tool; and EatDrink.it, a restaurant rating tool. It is an opportunity to connect with other professionals, and perhaps find a co-founder to turn ideas into reality.
