Vote for Columbus for Startup Weekend

Ann Arbor's getting one. Why not Columbus? What am I talking about? Startup Weekend.
Startup Weekend recruits a highly motivated group of small business entrepreneurs to build a community and company in a weekend. The founders decide what to make as a team, and earn an equal share of stock in the developed business. Attendees are responsible for bringing the desire and passion to the project and walk out of the room with a brand new business, in a short 54 hours. Sound intense? It is.
If you want one in Columbus, you gotta vote for it. So far, I was the 10th person to vote for one. Indianapolis (damn that Indy, our demo is similar but they get the NFL and NBA) is leading the vote count with 82 votes.

    I can't take all the credit with this blog post however since I posted a comment on Columbus Underground earlier this morning at 10 am. However, before that comment, the vote count was at 20.

    Thanks for this post. I emailed them last month to get Columbus on the voteing, then the site went down. I have contacted my super secret network of Central Ohioans (about 350) to vote for this.

    Lets bring Startup Weekend to Columbus.
