Microsoft is hosting the largest Startup Weekend event ever in the Bay Area on September 9-11 at the Mountain View campus. In partnership with Demo and Startup America, this is the first time that Startup Weekend is running 3 verticals during the same weekend – with a focus on Healthcare, Education, and Gaming.

Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups. At the Mega Weekend in September, each vertical will have a winning team and those 3 teams will get a booth at Demo, and a chance to win the audience choice award. The winner of the audience choice award will present on stage at Demo! This is a huge prize and will get your Startup Weekend idea amazing exposure.
