To all SWSG2012 participants!

Hey there!

Startup Weekend Singapore is less than 24 hours away & we say why wait till then to start?

Start pitching your idea right now with Pigeonhole Live!

Pigeonhole is a cross platform solution to post your pitches online, get votes on them or vote for other pitches you like. We’ll be using Pigeonhole for this Startup Weekend to receive all your pitches. The top 40 ideas from Pigeonhole will get a spot to pitch in front of everyone at Startup Weekend so that it may be worked on over the weekend.

Here’s what you need to do:
1) Go to http://phlive.at
2) Type the event code: SWSG2012
3) Sign in via your Facebook/Twitter or LinkedIn
4) Enter your Idea/Pitch (200 character limit)
5) Vote for any other pitch in there you like (NOTE: You only get 5 votes & you CANNOT retract your votes once you have done so)
6) Come to Startup Weekend & get more people to vote for your idea

For more info about Pigeonhole, visit their site here.

This is something you should do before the event if you already have an idea. :)

Get yourself ready for a jam packed weekend!

There’s a lot happening this whole weekend but here’s a summary of the key events so you can better prep yourself. Take note that we will do our absolute best to stick to these timings.
