How it works
This is how the magic happenshard to put it into words, so better watch it yourself
Day 1, ThursdayMeet your team
Thursday is all about getting yourself familiar with the people you’ll be spending the next 54 hours with. If you’re working on your own startup it’s your time to hit the stage and convince the crowd within 90 seconds.
No business idea? No problem! Just listen to the pitches and choose your favorite. People with a business background (marketing, sales, etc.), design expertise, or IT/programming skills are always needed in a complementary team-setting.
After a quick and yummy (you’ll see) team building activity we make sure team members get to know each other and feel pumped to start working. We’ll introduce you to our working method and let you set goals for the weekend.
