Alright all you hackers, dreams, thinkers, and creators! The good folks at Startup Weekend are back with their 5th annual installation of their much buzzed about event this November 13-15. This action-packed weekend is taking place in the T-REX co-working space in downtown St. Louis and kicks off on Friday at 6:30 pm sharp. You can register here.

Why you should participate:

1) EXCELLENT learning experience

2) Get in on the ground floor of a next potential startup unicorn

3) Meet cool, like-minded people

4) Create something from the ground up in 54 hours

5) Get maximum visibility from a TechStars backed event

In years past, Startup Weekend has produced rising star startups Juristat (a great tool that enables lawyers to anticipate the outcomes of their patent applications) and Invisible Industries (the team who created Invisible Girlfriend application).

More importantly, it is a great learning experience for all who participate and no, you DON’T need to know how to code. Teams also need the help of non-tech people as well (think marketers, etc.) We would encourage you to register early and if you don’t make it on a team for this session, you can learn about other ways to get involved here.
