Have you launched a startup in 54 hours? It is not impossible, just ask the folks that founded Zaarly who was part of Startup Weekend. Okay if you want a more local example, there was Flocations who was launched from the last Startup Weekend in Singapore where I was there as a mentor.
Yes for only 54 hours and actually it is less than that. Most of the startups don’t develop in the whole 54 hours but they do take breaks and head back home to rest. How you might ask this can work? This is because of a concept called MVP which stands for minimum viable product.
An MVP is the very lowest prototype of your idea which can be launched and show to the public.
You spend the weekend coding and trashing out your idea with other teams and the available mentors.
The folks who are running Startup Weekend SG are offering entrepreneurs and developers in Malaysia a 50% off from their ticket prices (ranging from S$79 to S$100) if you key in the promocode CAUSEWAY.
