I am currently at the airport, after a pretty intense weekend in Geneva : start-up weekend.
The idea is that for 54 hours, you do nothing but work on new ideas with a group. You develop them to get to a stage where you think they might be viable and you come up with ways to make them work. At the end of the weekend, you present your project to a jury through a small presentation and see what others think of it.
I ended up with a project that looks into last-minute hotel deals. I developed a prototype Android app (I was surprised I got this running within 2 days, but for some magical reason, it worked during our presentation), while others were working on the business model, the marketing plan and the development strategy.
The whole experience has been wonderful to me. You meet many entrepreneurs and like-minded people that want to make a difference and create their own jobs out there. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who thinks of him / herself as an entrepreneur ! 🙂
