48 hours ago…

Just over 48 hours ago 72 people came together in Boulder Colorado to see if they could come up with a business idea and launch by midnight Sunday.  We started Friday night with a handful of ideas . . . winnowed the list down to the top 3 favorites . . . and picked one to run with.  Here’s the result:

The process of working on a business with 70 people in such a short period of time was amazing.  I’ll put up some of the notes I took throughout the weekend in a post tomorrow but you can see a running tally of the experience at www.startupweekend.com.  This was entrepreneurship on steroids and was as much about the social experiment of starting a business as it was about the idea itself (something lost on many of the comment authors on our TechCrunch posting, but not lost on anyone who actually participated). 

Check out what we accomplished, but know that this is just the tip of the iceberg…

    Wow, I read the post and took a look at the site. Its really amazing, especially coming from the perspective of working with my own small business. Your starting group was bigger than my whole company, but I guess you have to start somewhere. I love articles like this, I find them inspiring. Actually, thats a neat basis for a computer game (educational maybe?), a busines builder that superstarts ideas, like amini version of your project.
