It’s like waiting for Christmas: The Startupweekend Hamburg is now only a few days away. Are you still pondering whether or not to attend? I think you should definitely get involved, no matter whether you have a business idea or not! Some of the participants are entrepreneurs, but many of them just want to enjoy building cool solutions with cool people.
The Startupweekend is similar to initiatives we have at XING such as the Protoyping Days and the innovation weeks, during which employees can develop ideas on how to improve XING products or work on new business ideas. So when I suggested that XING should support the StartupWeekend in Hamburg, the response was positive and I’m happy that we’ll be supporting the event as a Premiere sponsor.
Below are some suggestions as to how XING products can help get your business ideas rolling.
When starting a business, it’s important to find people who are passionate about the idea and can work with you to make it happen. Mingle at the Startupweekend to find people who would be interested in your idea. In everyday life, you can find the right people with XING contact suggestions and by attending XING events.
When developing a new product it’s vital to reach lots of customers with your solution. Have you considered integrating XING, the social business network? By using the XING API and our social plugins, you’ll be able to tap into our vast member base. Let’s build some cool stuff together and hopefully you’ll be part of the team at the Startupweekend that wins the XING prize – two years of free XING Premium membership!
I’m looking forward to meeting you at the event!
