FAQ: 
Does my pitch need to be an AI or data solution? 


No, anyone can pitch any idea at Startup Weekend. 

We would be overjoyed if you chose to make it an AI solution, however. 

We chose creative AI as a theme to bring interest and awareness to possible data solutions to some of the industry problems that face musicians, film producers, and fashion designers. From royalties to fashion marketing, there are limitless problems that exist as a function of logistics and data in the creative industries 

Am I expected to build a data model in just 54 hours!?

No, our panelists will judge you based upon concept and the due dilligence you have done to prove a minimum viable product or service. We suggest focusing on a problem in a specific market, developing the outline of a solution, and spending the weekend developing the steps to address the problem as comprehensively as possible.
