Build a company in a weekend

Posted by Brier Dudley

Startup Weekend, a mini-conference where attendees create and start a company in a weekend, is coming to Seattle on Jan. 25-27 for a session at Adobe's Fremont campus.

Registration is $20, and participants receive shares of the company they start. Startup Weekend, an organization run by Boulder, Colo., entrepreneur Andrew Hyde, gets 5 percent of the company. He's held similar events in 13 other cities since July.

A group of Seattle tech types has been doing the same thing on a less formal basis.

Maybe it's time for a battle of the bands thing, or Iron Chef Startup.
