Redding’s Startup Weekend

Nov 20-22 was Redding, CA’s 1st startup weekend.  First, I’d like to thank Hope Seth from Shasta EDC for the invitation to mentor at the weekend.  The weekend was great, full of good ideas, fun and hard working people and the autumn weather was just amazing.  (I even made time to enjoy biking on one of Redding’s beautiful trails along the Sacramento River.)

Here are the videos shot during the weekend of three of the nine startups..So sorry I didn’t get them all.  You’ll notice they’re all on Facebook, which is where I’m posting almost everything these days but I realize there are followers here who, as they like to tell me ‘don’t do Facebook’.  I understand your reasons so here they are for you. Enjoy!

JUSTICEBOWS

The youngest entrepreneur at the startup weekend is 12 yr old Gabriel who is making eco friendly bow ties with a portion of sales going to charity. The website is in progress but should have more info later this weekend. Visit www.JusticeBows.com

PHOTOBOMB

Have you ever photo bombed? Watch this and see how you might be able to find those bombs.  I have to admit, since startup weekend I’ve photo bombed twice and I’m not a bomber, or at least I wasn’t until this startup influenced me!

SENSU5

Bryan P Cosby is leading a team that is doing something awesome and powerful for recording memories by making it easy to document what you see, feel, touch, feel and hear.

PS: WordPress has for some reason decided NOT to put the Facebook videos in here directly like it has in the past when I’ve pasted links in here and then previewed.  UGGGGrrrrr.  Yet another reason why I prefer Facebook to blogging.  WHY can’t WordPress get it right!?!?!?!?  Making it harder, not easier, is going to keep me from using it. Followers, if you haven’t friended or followed me yet on Facebook, do it because stuff like this means you’ll get less here on WordPress, not more.
