Hey SJSU LUG,
I'm SoonKhen, someone who is very passionate about entrepreneurship
especially tech entrepreneurship. As I have proposed before last semester,
we are organizing StartupSJSU, an event to help SJSU students and alumni
start tech companies. It is a weekend long business/hackathon competition
on April 6th, 7th and 8th. It starts on Friday at 6pm and will end on
Sunday at 7pm.
The event basically lets students of different discipline (business,
engineering, design) to come together and work on an idea over the weekend.
It could be something like an Android/iOS app, or a web app. The event
could also serve as a networking event for potential co-founders.
The event works like this:
1. Participants can pitch any ideas they had during the event
2. The ideas will be voted by everyone attending
3. People can then choose to join the teams for the weekend
4. The teams need to create a business model and a prototype to present
on Sunday evening.
5. Judges will decide which teams win and the winner will get cash
prizes to hopefully keep working on the idea.
The ticket for a technical person (coder, designer, programmer) is at
http://j.mp/zUWITa, if you think you can't code or design, you can get the
business ticket at http://j.mp/xsipp3. The ticket price is just $25 for
early birds. Hurry up before the price goes up! We are covering unlimited
food and snacks during the day thanks to Dining Commons. Unlimited coffee!
Not to mention there are cash prizes of $300, $150 for 1st and 2nd place,
and and iPad for those who built a cool app using
