If you haven’t heard of Startup Weekend yet, it’s an event where 80~100 entrepreneurs get together and launch multiple startups in a matter of 54 hours.
Startup Weekend Los Angeles is happening this weekend, and there are still tickets left for graphic designers!
A few Startup Weekend’s ago, Ashton Kutcher stopped by with Demi to check out the scene, and if I’m correct was a judge. That’s probably how Zaarly scored Ashton as an investor and got a jump start from tweets by celebrities like Demi.
If you don’t remember the story, Zaarly announced that they raised $1 million within a few months of launching at Startup Weekend in February 2011. (link)
I wonder what kind of craziness we’ll see this weekend.
