I know this may come a little late but here it goes…
Startup Weekend Davao is definitely happening this Friday, November 9th! Startup Weekend is a 3-day event that will showcase the best of the best minds of Davao City. It is a global grassroots event where developers, designers, marketers, entrepreneurs put their ideas on the table and turn them into business models feasible enough to pitch to potential investors. Hundreds of Startup Weekends have been held in 100 countries around the world, while this would be the first for Davao City. A few have already been done in Manila and Cebu City, with a couple upcoming ones in the works.
If you wish to join this historic event, you may register here. There’s only a *few* slots available and we hope to see these filled up come Friday. To makes things even more convincing, Zachary Cohn (Twitter), Bootcamp Director and Hacker Relations at Startup Weekend, is coming over for the event, joined by a group of well-respected mentors and judges, including my friend Aileen Apolo (Twitter), business colleague Eric Su, Christian Besler, Tina Amper and many more. Moreover, super cool prizes are at stake, including a chance to fly to Rio de Janeiro and Google HQ in Silicon Valley.
