If you are looking for a co-founder, new hire or have an idea you are kicking around, check out Startup Weekend. It's being hosted at Microsoft in Redmond on December 10th-12th in Redmond. This Startup Weekend is a Mobile and Gaming themed event, so if you have an idea brewing for a mobile app, new game or both, this is a great time to pitch it.
There are great prizes for teams including $15,000 in prototyping help from Microsoft. We have seen several Startup Weekend teams go on to get funding, including FoodSpotting, MemoLane, Score.ly, and Seattle’s own Giant Thinkwell, so think big!
Friends of Microsoft get a discount, just use the code "microsoft". Hope to see you in Redmond!
