For those interested, the next Startup Weekend Lausanne will be held from March 2-4, 2012 at the Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne.

Anyone interested can attend and present ideas for new start up ventures in 60 seconds.  The favorites are then explored in different groups arranged by theme. Teams are between 4-10 people, and consist of about 50% technical people and 50% non-technical. You then spend the entire weekend getting advice from professional mentors, and building a proof of concept, demo, or sometimes even a finished product, to present in front of a panel of judges on Sunday night.

Most ideas are web & tech focused, but almost any new business needs a web, marketing, and business strategy regardless if it is tech centric.

The event will be held in French and English. That means you can present an idea and work all weekend in your preferred language.
