For just one weekend #LAMEDIASW is bringing together creative talent from the entertainment and technology spheres to innovate and present local entrepreneurial leaders exciting new media ventures.
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a co-founder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you have fresh ideas for Entertainment and Media solutions, let’s put them into action, register now for a life changing weekend!

- Ethan Applen: Exec. Director, Tech. & Business Strategy at Warner Bros.
- Daniel Romano: Head of UX & Design at Disney Interactive Entertainment
