How to launch a start-up in 54 hours

In 2007, the first Startup Weekend was held in Boulder Colorado. Since then the concept – giving budding entrepreneurs 54 hours to pitch their ideas, form teams to develop the most popular concepts and then re-pitch in front of a panel of start-up experts – has travelled round the world. Idealog's Jessy Edwards and Anna Bradley-Smith were at the recent Wellington Startup Weekend, themed around education. Here is their video story.

Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription, an Idealog t-shirt and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
