IVR Technology Group has Front Row Seats to the Coding Combat and is joining the Global Start-Up Battle as Silver Sponsor of Buffalo, NY’s Start Up Weekend 2012. Individuals and groups alike will convene at Medaille College on November 16 for this epic, yet friendly, throw down of entrepreneurial innovators.
We couldn’t be more excited as we partner in this effort to strengthen Buffalo’s internet-based technology sector. Executive team members will be observing, mentoring and soaking up fresh perspectives and new talent throughout the weekend.
The Battle begins at 5pm. The order of events are as follows:
- Floor opens for anyone to pitch their start-up idea and receive feedback from their peers
- Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote)
- 54 hour full-on Coding Combat: business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation
- Final throw down: presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders ( including another opportunity for critical feedback)
