I have participated in two Startup Weekends to date, and fully intend to take part in more. I love working on other peoples ideas and in teams with people from different backgrounds with totally different views on how projects should be approached.
For my first startup weekend I worked on Evnt, a web platform for venues to advertise events and for customers to find these events. My major roles on the team were creating mockups of the site and the slides for the final presentation. The name and function of the group changed a lot over the first day, working with a team of seven, with a split between designers and developers.

My second startup weekend was spend with team Wrisk. Wrisk used Fitbits to calculate insurance premiums and provide more clarity to both the insurer and the insuree. The team size was a much more manageable four, I was the sole designer on this team. Over the weekend I created a click through prototype of the insuree smartphone app using Invision, and was again responsible for the final presentation slides.
