Startup Weekend Ogden

We decided to take our team to Startup Weekend Ogden in November. According to, the event is described as follows:

“All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.”

After giving a winning pitch, Mike led our team (which included some other awesome entrepreneurs) on a project/application that would be able to facilitate Bitcoin transfers for the banking industry.

Pictured here are the Guru guys hard at work coding. These guys are incredible;  they did hardcore coding from morning to night the whole weekend! Good thing there was a constant flow of food and drinks provided by the event… IMG_0145-1

At the end of the weekend, we presented our working application! Its amazing what our team accomplished in just 54 hours. We took a concept, designed and built a system, received market validation and have a prototype to show. Go Team!IMG_0151
