Pre-Startup Weekend Bootcamps: Cebu and Davao

After a very exciting quarter in Manila, the GDG folks are off to Visayas and Mindanao to help participants prep for Startup Weekend!

We are bringing our tried-and-tested formula to Cebu and Davao! Talking points include:
  • SW: What happens in SWM? What's the agenda? Is there a schedule we should follow?
  • Pitching: What's it like? Should I pitch? What should I have in my 60 second pitch? What should I include in the final Sunday pitch?
  • Teamwork: How are teams formed? If my idea isn't picked, should I leave or join another team? Team culture starts on day one. Don't screw it up.
  • Development Process: Design guidelines, Adopting a "good enough for the weekend" philosophy

Both bootcamps will cover similar topics, including guidelines in pitching, marketing, creating business plans, Android, and how Google's tools can help speed up the development process.

To make it even more worthwhile, please bring your laptops, extension cords, internet sticks, and lots of energy!

  1. Dudes and dudets seriously join! Its filled with awesome sauce!

  2. I registered for the event in Davao... I got to the place shown on the map and it was in the middle of an intersection. I finally found CVA building but there was nothing there... No registration, no bootcamp, nothing. There wasn't even a phone number I could use to contact the organizers. Seriously, did this event even push through?
