■ Message from Startup Weekend Manazuru operation team

Startup Weekend (SW) is
from quote of Jonny Li (Japanese article) ,who brought SW to Japan, "it's a place where people meet up for the first time, form teams and make a product together druing 3 days on a weekend!!" type of event.
Reference: (Japanese blog article)

With the latest information, SW has been spread to over 700 cities and areas ( ← Please check the world map on the page that Manazuru is clearly marked also :) ) and we would like to have an explanatory session prior to our first SW Manazuru session to be held between Fri June 20th and Sun 22nd.

Planned topics are:

  • What is Startup Weekend (SW)?
  • What is characteristic about SW Manazuru and Manazuru Town? What are the challenges?
  • How can I get involved as a participant or a cooperator ?

and so forth.

Please plan to visit us on this occasion.
Inviting your friends is also welcome.

We, SW Manazuru team, are looking forward to seeing you all here in Manazuru!!
