For an idea of what Startup Weekend will be like, check this video out:
"We live in a time where anything is possible and anything can be built - as long as we can bring together the right people around the right ideas. Startup Weekend is a global initiative that brings together passionate individuals with unique skill sets and experiences, then challenges them to turn their ideas into reality over the course of a weekend. This film captures the journey of two participants at Startup Weekend in Toronto: Ronan Levy (Delirious App) and Eugene Woo (Vizualize.me), and explores what it means to live the life of a startup entrepreneur. ‘Startup Weekend’ was screened at Startup Weekend Toronto on Friday November 18th 2011."
