Startup Weekend Hartford: Education organizer John Shemo, and past SWHartford winner John Farrell were on the Ray Dunaway show recently!
John and John talked about the format of the event – pitching business ideas on Friday night, working through the weekend to create the business, and then share their businesses with a panel of judges on Sunday night. Each business is vying to win prizes that will help them get their startup off the ground!
“It was a great experience, and I was just a computer programmer with no entrepreneurial background before Startup Weekend. But then after I did it I kind of fell in love with the whole mindset, with startups, and the hustle behind it.” – John Farrell, Startup Weekend participant and past winner
