“Birmingham Startup” is a startup weekend effort, but is in no way affiliated with Startup Weekend, LLC (owned and operated by the infamous Andrew Hyde). Witness his statement:
“Startup Weekend is the name of my company, and I have asked kindly you do not refer to your event as being associated with it.“ – Andrew Hyde, blog comment dated 01NOV07
Birmingham Startup, Inc. is an independent entity incorporated for the following purposes, among others:
- To organize the Birmingham Startup Internet Technology Weekend in Birmingham, Alabama, and to conduct any activities in furtherance thereof;
- To render to others, and to engage in the business of rendering to others, consulting, advisory, administrative, industrial engineering, accounting, bookkeeping and other services of every nature, kind and character, which a corporation may legally render;
- etc. etc.
We reserve the right to join with other startup weekend efforts across the globe in sharing best practices and our experiences. Who knows where this may take us all.
