The Spirit of Entrepreneurism Is Alive

The desire and passion to be an Entrepreneur is strong and vibrant as evidenced by the participation in the Startup Weekend in Santa Clarita, CA held October 5-7, 2012.

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.

The Startup Weekend Santa Clarita attracted more than 50 budding entrepreneurs and advisors who initially pitched 21 unique ideas. Teams formed around the top seven ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it was a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. Teams worked hard all weekend and presented the final, nearly completed business concepts to local entrepreneurial leaders for judging and critical feedback on Sunday evening. The top three ideas were awarded meaningful prizes.

Working with one of the teams allowed me to see the enthusiasm, creativity, dedication and talent of the participants. The spirit of Entrepreneurism is alive and kicking.

Thanks to the sponsors and local SCV Startup  leaders Erick Arndt and Brian Tippy ( for organizing the successful event.
