Triangle Startup Weekend

Triangle Startup Weekend: Social Impact will bring together 60+ people interested in making a social impact for 54-hours to develop innovative business solutions that will solve a social or environmental problem.

The event begins with open-mic 60-second pitches on Friday night that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable concepts. Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on user research, customer development, validating their ideas and designing prototypes with the help of experienced coaches from the social impact sector. On Sunday, teams demo their social impact products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges!

Here is a quick 1-minute video that explains what TSW: Social Impact is all about...
