Startup Weekend San Francisco In Full Swing

We covered Startup Weekend Atlanta a week ago. Now the team has rolled in to San Francisco for a multi-day event with the single goal of building a new startup, from idea to launch.

The new company will be called helphookup, a site to connect people who want to volunteer their time to good causes with the people who need help. Follow their progress here.

The group says 132 people showed up to co-found the startup.

If you’re at the event, please tell us how it’s going. Any fights yet? Squabbles over equity? When will the site launch? Tell us all the drama.

Update: The first comment below says these events are a waste of time from a ROI perspective. I disagree. Yes, it’s unlikely any of these startups will be a commercial success, but the opportunity to spend time with people who share your interests, make new friends, etc., is well worth the time. See my thoughts here and comments to that post by participants.
