Interested in exploring virtual reality, artificial intelligence, or augmented reality? Or perhaps you just love startups and big ideas? Either way, you’ll want to be in Redmond this weekend for Startup Weekend.
“A Touch of the Future” will kick off Friday evening with registration, dinner, and networking at Microsoft’s Building 86. You know the drill from there: Participants will be divided into teams, big ideas form, ad execution begins. May the best team win!
James Whitaker, Microsoft’s distinguished engineer and technical evangelist, and Andrew Lientz, Smartsheet’s senior vice president of engineering, will be the keynote speakers. Coaches include Meridith Fishkin, manager at Port of Seattle; Kevin Yu, cofounder and CTO of Socedo; Jen Huang, senior corporate counsel at T-Mobile; Paul Cutsinger, with Alexa and Echo at Amazon; Meng Wang, lead scientist at Amazon; and many others.
Final presentations will be delivered to a panel of judges at 5 p.m. on Sunday, with judging and awards beginning at 7:30 p.m. Get your tickets here.
