Startup Weekend Bangkok Creative Edition 2014 is just like any other Startup Weekend: 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepre-neurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan de-velopment, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.
