[Update: The event organizer Yuri Rabinovich tells us that there’s going to be a “Coming Out Party” for this event, where you can meet your co-founders and other cool peeps. Check it out!]
The first ever Startup Monthly Idea Accelerator event takes place on February 25th, 2011 at the Hacker Dojo office in Mountain View, California. The event promises to help you go from an idea or a problem solution, to product launch within a month!
Participants are given 1 minute to pitch. The pitch should include the answers to the following 3 questions:
- What is the problem you are solving?
- What is the solution you envision?
- How will you make money?
Computer presentation not necessary. Just tell the other peeps in 1 minute what you think!
If you are looking to join a startup then be ready to position yourself with the skills you have such as Developer, Project Manager, Bizdev, Marketing, Sales etc.
