I was getting prepared for the Salt Lake Startup Weekend scheduled for tomorrow. I logged on to check the address for the event. To my dismay, the program was moved back a week to avoid conflicts with Labor Day Weekend.
Scheduling startup weekend for the Labor Day Weekend was not the best move. People who are working on start ups often have to give up holidays. Giving up Labor Day didn't register as a concern for me, but it may have reduced participation.
Delaying the event might prove to my advantage.
I plan on giving a pitch related to the recreation industry.
The pitch is the type of thing that might appeal to students. So, I am really happy about the change in venue from an office downtown to the Junior Achievement section of Discovery Gateway. If you are young and want to make a little money in recreation, I have a great opportunity.
So, the more I think about it, I am happy with the change in time and location of the event.
