If you've ever felt the urge to build something, listen up. This weekend, a very special edition of Startup Weekend is hitting the Northwest. The Makerhaus is hosting a 'Maker' style event this coming weekend (June 28- 30).
What is a Maker event? Glad you asked! Maker events are focused on building physical products during the weekend...awesome right? And better yet, it's made possible because by access to state-of-the-art tools and expertise provided by Makerhaus . The 10,000 square foot facility offers micro-controllers, laser cutting equipment, 3D printers, metal working areas, woodworking tools, and more, making the possibilities of what can be created during the weekend just about endless.
If that wasn't exciting enough, Coca Cola will be helping out with the event as well, bringing in industrial design experts to help teams succeed. With other sponsors like Madrona Venture Group, 1OAK Technologies, PCH International, BlackEdge Capital, Impinj, adafruit, Hack Things, We Think It Matters, and MOO.com, the access to experts and chance at startup success (and a whole lot of learning and experience), is off the charts!
Come pitch, join a team, iron out your business model, and build away!
