Chris Campbell of Startup Weekend will join Charles Mudd to discuss the startup culture in Chicago, Illinois.

Chris Campbell is a volunteer Global Facilitator for Startup Weekend and has been one of the local organizers for Chicago since 2009. Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, teams and communities.

From Startup Weekend's website:

"Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable.  On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.

Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts."

Join Charles Mudd with Chris Campbell to discuss the Startup Weekend phenomenon; the Startup Weekend process in more detail; success stories; and more.
