Startup Sandbox for socially reponsible ventures

Hackfest for the Light and Women 2.0 are putting on a Startup Sandbox in November at Microsoft. They especially encourage socially responsible software ideas and companies to attend — bring your whole team or just an idea and ask for whatever help you need.


Come spend a whirlwind 56 hrs with like-minded entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, dreamers, and work on any of the following —

  • Make a working prototype
  • Create an investor presentation
  • Come with your company and get feedback
  • Come with an idea to make a mock up
  • Practice and learn new skills

The event starts at 6pm Friday Nov 20, and goes until Sunday evening, Nov 22.

Location: Microsoft, 835 Market Street (Westfield Center), Suite #700
