Get ready! Here are some tips for 1st day at Greater Lafayette Startup Weekend 2012


We hope you’re all as excited as we are about the Startup Weekend in Greater Lafayette kicking off tonight!

Here are some final details for you:

  • Doors open tonight at 5:30 PM. The location is Lafayettech HUB (580 N 36th St, Suite A, Lafayette, IN 47905), right behind Eastside 9 theater.
  • Look for parking spots all around the building, and also behind the Eastside 9 theater. There should be plenty of space to park, feel free to tweet us @Lafayettech with questions.
  • Pizza (Bruno’s) will arrive around 6:00 PM and we will kick things off officially at 6:30 PM.
  • As soon as the first speakers are finished, we will jump right into pitches (roughly 7:30 PM or sooner). We will explain how the pitching process works, but here are some things to begin thinking about:
    • Pitches are 60 seconds.
    • You may have one or multiple chances to pitch, depending on how many people want to pitch tonight. So pitch your best idea first.
    • No Powerpoints will be used – just your voice and body language.
  • We will be closing the Hub’s doors at midnight on Friday and Saturday, but remember to rest up ahead of time! The weekend will fly by.
  • If you purchased student tickets, please remember to bring your student ID.
