Creating a community of Innovation. Creative professionals and hobbyists alike have been gathering every 3rd Monday of the month at rotating locations around Orlando since 2006, and we're not going to stop! Once a year we have an anniversary party in December, and in May we move our event over to Loch Haven Park for the Orlando Fringe Festival.
BarCamp Deland is an ad-hoc unconference event centered around technology. It aims to bring people together from different backgrounds like web-design, photography, graphic design, art, music, web-development and technology for cooperative learning. It's an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join. When you come, be prepared to share.
The inaugural VenturePitch Orlando event in May sold out, and you don't want to miss the next event! We're bringing six more promising technology startups to the stage to pitch before our panel of distinguished technology investor judges. We'll also have another venture-backed entrepreneur deliver a thought provoking key note presentation.
Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. Startup Weekend Orlando EDU is focused on creating startups that will change the way that education is delivered. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. Winning ideas will receive $5,000 in startup capital.
Do you have a crazy pet project you've been aching to show the world? Bring out your work in progress to Urban ReThink on July 12 at 6:25 PM. You'll work alongside artists, engineers, writers, and hackers in a fun, social, collaborative environment.
Let's break it down now, shall we?
Latin meets Asian, Restaurant meets Food Truck. Sounds like an awesome mashup to me. Tako Cheena is a great example of the kind of energy we encourage at Florida Creatives - take things that don't traditionally belong together, put them in the same room, and watch the sparks fly!
Come an meet some of the talented creative minds of Orlando in one of the longest-running happy hour meetups in the state of Florida. We hope you can find a safe place to share new ideas, talk about your passions and meet some mentors or collaborators. We have been attracting a pretty diverse group recently, so you don't want to miss it!
Tako Cheena will be opening up special for us. They have also told me it's OK to BYOB for tonight - normally they only serve sodas juice and water.
