Friday Night

5:30-6pm (Coon Forum) – Doors Open. Arrive, Register, Networking, etc.
6:00 pm (Coon Forum) – Kick-off. The organizers and facilitator will introduce themselves, talk a little bit about Incinerator Weekend in general and introduce sponsors/first round judges. Mention team dynamics and what participants should watch for in pitches. Participants will be put into two brackets, one for NUvention Web and another for the various other teams.
6:30 pm (Coon and Ford) - Teams will pitch against each other and judges will render initial decisions. Half the ideas will be eliminated.
8:00 pm (Coon and Ford) – After pitches, the groups naturally organize. If you lost, you should seek out a winner's idea which you liked; if you want to continue with your idea, notify the organizers and they will set up a second bracket for those who want to pivot. If you won, try to mobilize a team; maybe you saw a loser whose spunk you liked. The final number of team members per team is up to the group, though it’s important to try to cover a variety of roles: business development, designers, UI, developers, etc.
8:30 pm (Coon Forum) - Organizers introduce lean canvas/business model canvas.
9:00 pm (Anywhere) - Refine concept and decide how you’ll attack things. Then, it’s go go go, until you decide to call it quits or, all night. Maybe hit the A&O Blowout!
