Last fall, the greater Lansing community was brought together for Startup Weekend Lansing 1.0. Excitement lead to a spiral of events and amazing conquests for entrepreneurs of Lansing and East Lansing. The area has been buzzing with entrepreneurial activity – including some of the best hacking and hustling Lansing has seen in some time.
Startups are now being built overnight – It’s amazing to see the progress that Michigan has made in the past year and a half. I’m proud to announce that at Startup Weekend Lansing 3.0, we will be continuing this trend. Who will build the next Thoughtback, or the next SoapBox? (which by the way, just won the Lean Startup Challenge in Chicago, resulting in $75k in cash and prizes – Amazing!)
Let’s hack. Let’s hustle. And let’s start changing the world!
