Girls in Tech has always been very involved when it came to participating at Startup Weekend happenings, but this one takes the cake. Girls in Tech is sponsoring Startup Weekend Minneapolis! We’re heading for the Twin Cities to give the local folks a taste of SW fun at a 54-hour event. So get ready to bring in your ideas, work with a lot of cool people, and launch your product with a bang.

Startup Weekend Minneapolis owes Shane Reiser a bunch of thanks for making it all happen on September 17 to 19. And of course, bringing in the big guns is all part of the fun. Co-founder of Zencoder, Jon Dahl, will be dropping by, as well as Jeff Pesek, co-founder of TECHdotMN. W31 2000 co-founder Rob Weber will also be there. Matt Bauer of Pedal Brain, Pete Birkland of RAIN Source Capital, Luke Francl, and Kathy Grayson will also make their presence felt come panel night.

And even though the event is still a month away, it will never hurt to grab a ticket of your own right now. Only 100 registrants will be taken in, so make sure you’re part of that number. Of course, members of Girls in Tech, as well as students, will get a discount. So head to Minneapolis on September and experience the SW rush soon.
