Your idea in 54 hours | Everyone is welcomed | Startup now!

Latinx in Tech brings exposure, awareness, and an experiential way to learn about tech to the community.

We aim to inspire potential entrepreneurs in the Latinx community to breathe life into their ideas and learn how to bridge the gap from ideation to prototype with customer validation.

We're gathering 100 Latinx entrepreneurs in the making and allies over 54 hours, in different cities to identify and design technology solutions to problems disproportionately facing the U.S. Latinx community.

Our main focus is on tech solutions, but we welcome all ideas that will help to create a future fueled by Latinx leadership and experiences.

Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with?

Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

Your ticket includes:

• 1 Kick-Off Dinner; FRI (Pizza), 2 Breakfasts; SAT/SUN (Fruit/Burritos), Snacks; FRI-SUN (Fruit/Cookies), over the course of the weekend
• T-shirt, personalized for LatinX In Tech. Only available for attendees.
• Benefits and discounts from our global partners
• One-on-one time with amazing mentors
• A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
• All the internet and coffee you can consume.

Still have questions, feel free to reach us at “tucsonlatinx@startupweekend.org”.

No talk, all action!

Date: October 21, 2018 - 9:00am to October 23, 2018 - 5:00am
Location: K'é Main Street Learning Lab

Podcasting is the hot new thing in media.

And it is not hard to understand why.

Audio lends an intimate, accessible peek into your body of work. Your show streams into the earbuds of listeners on long walks around the world. It fills up cars stuck in traffic. It brings world-renowned experts into your living room, where you can listen to them as if they were on the couch next to you.

With more and more people listening to podcasts to educate and entertain themselves, the number of opportunities for coaches, creatives and consultants to be heard and discovered through audio are booming.

(Not often told story: It was Pam's podcast that landed her first book deal for Escape from Cubicle Nation. Her editor from Penguin Portfolio confessed in an email "I listen to your podcast while riding the train into my office. I love your work. Want to do a book with us?" The answer, as you know, was a resounding YES!)

And yet so many podcast formats are stale and uninspiring. (Interview Internet famous person! Ask them the biggest lesson they learned about entrepreneurship! Riff on random topics with no particular point! Have wobbly audio from poor Skype connections!)

For this reason, plotting and designing on Zoom for months from Mesa, Arizona and Norwich, Norfolk in the UK, Pamela Slim and Rob Lawrence have created a truly unique in-person experience that blends decades of business consulting expertise (Pam and Rob share this) with decades of audio engineering expertise (Rob owns this).

During these 3 days we explore how and why podcasts, and audio, can be used to rally new communities of like-minded people together. Why podcasts are a powerful marketing tool and how audio can help those interested to create or reach new audiences whilst raising their professional profile and credibility through their story, expertise and message. And why sharing stories is an essential, powerful part of equity and community building. (Click HERE to learn more! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/modern-craft-3-day-podcasting-intensive-tic...)
