Build Madison is back!
The 24-hour community “create-a-thon” returns to Sector67 on November 19 starting at 11am. Project presentations begin at 11am on Sunday, November 20.
We’re excited to announce the 7th annual Build Madison event coordinated by Capital Entrepreneurs and hosted at Sector67. Build Madison is a 24 hour hackathon that gives you the opportunity to set aside some time over the weekend to finally get to that project you’ve been thinking about for a long time!
The weekend starts out on Saturday, November 19th, at 11am, when we’ll host 30 second idea pitches. After that you can join a team or build a team if you need one to work on your project. Then when 11AM on Sunday swings around we’ll have a short project presentations and/or sharing of lessons learned (aka: why my project didn’t quite get done in time!) from everyone who participated.
That’s as simple as it is – take the 24 hour period as seriously or as inquisitively as you’d like. In the past, projects have varied from very sophisticated to very basic, software to hardware, art to engineering – so don’t feel like your concept isn’t going to fit in – it will. There’s no requirement to stay up all night, many people work late into the evening and stop back in the morning for presentations.
