12th Moscow Startup Weekend

September 9 – 11, 2011, 10:00 conference

On September 9th, 10th, and 11th, the company Glavstart hosted the Moscow Startup Weekend at the Digital October Center. At this three-day working session, experts in the IT field helped novice internet project teams attract investments.

Startup Weekend began on Friday with theory: three well-known experts shared their experiences doing business on the internet.

  • Arkady Moreinis, head of Glavstart, described the pitfalls that await novice professionals in project development.
  • Ilya Segalovich, founder of Yandex, suggested adopting the experience of foreign colleagues.
  • Vitaly Bykov, general manager of the Red Keds agency, shared his opinions on how to make a project popular on social networks and attract your first customers.

Saturday and Sunday were devoted to practice. At the end of Startup Weekend, each participant received a guide to action – practical tips and advice from experts in various fields of internet business: what to do with a project, and how to attract an audience, earn money, and look for partners and customers.

Based on the results of work at Startup Weekend, the best teams will receive up to $100,000 from Glavstart and Arkady Moreinis to realize their projects.
