Halsey Minor to Speak at Startup Grind Las Vegas

We try not to cover every event that’s happening in the Las Vegas startup community or this blog would just become a Las Vegas startup event blog. However, every once in a while we like to highlight new events or special events that are happening in Las Vegas. In this case, I just wanted to point out that StartupGrind Las Vegas is back.

Starting at CES in January, Michael Terpin together with Warren Whitlock have committed to holding the Startup Grind Las Vegas events again. They always do an incredible job bringing unique, successful, and interesting people to Las Vegas for the events.

This month on April 18, 2016 at 6 PM, the next Startup Grind Las Vegas will host Halsey Minor from Reality Labs and Voxelus. Here’s a little bit more about Halsey:

About HALSEY MINOR (REALITY LABS, VOXELUS)

An Internet and tech pioneer, Halsey Minor was a key player in the digital publishing revolution. In 1993, he founded CNET Networks, the first comprehensive consumer-facing technology content publisher and one of the most-visited and trusted technology information resources in the world. Halsey led CNET to become a NASDAQ 100 company. CNET was acquired by CBS Corporation in 2008 for $1.8 billion.

In 2015, Minor founded Voxelus, a platform that allows anyone, anywhere to create, share and play virtual reality games and experiences without writing a single line of code. Starting January 2016, Uphold connected to the Voxel blockchain (Voxchain), which means that VOX can be transferred between external VOX wallets and Uphold wallets, as well as being convertible from all other currencies supported by Uphold.

If you’ve never been to a Startup Grind, you should register now and attend. Plus, the event is being held at The Iron Yard (1112 S Casino Center Blvd Las Vegas, 89104), so you can learn about their new Hospitality Accelerator as well.

Startup Weekend Las Vegas is Back – Nov 20-22, 2015

I can’t keep track of how many Startup Weekend’s we’ve had in Las Vegas, but I always want to support Startup Weekend Las Vegas. For those who haven’t been around the Las Vegas startup community for very long, the first Startup Weekend Las Vegas was the kick off to everything we now know as #VegasTech. That first event together with the Vegas Jelly really brought the Las Vegas tech startup community together in a way that wasn’t happening previous to the event.

With all of that said, I’m excited that Startup Weekend Las Vegas is happening again on November 20-22, 2015 at UNLV Beam Hall and you can register here. The format is the same as usual. The kickoff on Friday with anyone who wants to pitching an idea. Then, teams are formed around the ideas and work begins to build the idea. Teams work all day Saturday and Sunday morning fleshing out their idea and launching their product/website/company. Sunday afternoon you present your idea to the judges and the prizes are awarded.

Outside of the logistics of Startup Weekend, you also get fed amazing food, get to meet and work with tons of amazing people, and you might walk away with prizes. The best part of these events really is the opportunity to meet and connect with other participants in a real working environment. You learn a lot about people when you’re working on a fun project in a time constrained situation.

It’s also worth mentioning that a number of Vegas Startup companies were started at Startup Weekend Las Vegas including one that eventually sold to eBay.

Everyone is welcome to attend Startup Weekend. There’s registration for Non-Technical, Developers, and Designers, so register now. Also, there’s a guest pass to just attend the pitches on Friday and the presentations on Sunday.

I hope to see many of you there!

Take Part in Startup Weekend Vegas 2014

The following is a guest blog post by Claudia Perez, Organizer of Startup Weekend Las Vegas.

Startup Weekend Vegas 2014 (Nov. 21-23) at the Innevation Center is just three weeks away and it’s time you jumped in. Startup Weekend (SW) is a rare opportunity to try your hand at launching a startup in a supportive environment with other “hustlers, hackers, and hipsters”. If you’re thinking about registering, here are the top 5 reasons why you should be there:
 

1. Expand Your Network
Entrepreneurs, developers, designers, and marketers will be there and you’ll want to connect with them. Local tech and startup leaders will be at Startup Weekend as mentors and judges.  Get some one-on-one time with the movers and shakers in Las Vegas.  Just look at our judging panel, it’s made up of four investors and two successful entrepreneurs. Plus, Startup Weekend is a great way to show off your skills and meet awesome talent in the community.

2. Re-Energize
Free your mind off the daily routine and feel inspired by working on a fast paced project or idea for the weekend. At Startup Weekend attendees are excited to participate, work, and to help others create something great.

3. Work Outside of Your Comfort
“If you’re curious to test the waters as a front-end or backend developer for apps or websites, or if you have a skill for sales communication that you’d like to sharpen, this is the perfect opportunity to dabble. Startup Weekend is a learning environment and there are always people of different skill levels in attendance. Those attending with more experience are happy to teach others and give advice.” -Jaclyn Hudak, Ready Maker Design @JaclynHudak

4. Challenge Yourself
Are you an expert in website design and want to learn app development? Is there an area of design that you wish you had more experience in? Whether it’s creating apps, websites, logos, or marketing, you can join a team who needs you to create something quickly; a great way to challenge yourself and build new skills without the pressure to be absolutely perfect.

5. Build A Business
“The bottom line is that Startup Weekend is the best place to launch a startup. If you’ve had an idea in your head but haven’t done anything about it, there’s no better event to get started. You’ll be surrounded by really smart and driven people who want to work together on building something from the ground up. Maybe you’ll work on your idea, or maybe someone else’s idea will pique your interest. Startup Weekend is the place to validate a business idea, build a product and launch a startup in just 54 hours.” – Mike Chan, Co-founder of Ribl @mikewchan

#VegasTech Wins Health-Based Code-a-thon in Palm Springs, CA

The following is a guest blog post by Christian Torres.

Last week a hand full of techies from the Vegas tech community were selected to be a part of a code-a-thon called Code 4 Health in Palm Springs, CA. This Code-a-thon was hosted by Tumbr, Jawbone Up, The Clinton Foundation and the Ace Hotel. We got to “compete” with other participants from Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.

I just happen to be one of the 8 selected to represent the VegasTech community.
-Savannah Collins, who works at the UNLV Startup Center
-Susan Hinton, who works for Zappos, does the downtown podcast and is heavily involved in the maker community
-Jason Grotte a graphic designer who also works for Zappos
-The Wedgies Team that consist of Jimmy Jacobson, Porter Haney, Mark Johnson and Chris Moody
-And yours truly

It’s been interesting to see all of the buzz the we’re able to generate since the team that won the Code 4 Health Code-a-thon was made up of Vegas Tech members.

The winner of the code-a-thon was a Vegas Tech team that built an app called Walk It Off. It connects your Jawbone Up with Automatic to track the distance you drove your car and compared the data to see how many steps you could have taken instead of driving. To learn more about Walk it Off click here.

Here are a few tweets about the Vegas Tech Winners:

We were judged by Chelsea Clinton, the vice chair of the Clinton Foundation; Mark Mathews, a Desert Healthcare District board member; Art Acosta, the director of manufacturing at Care Fusion Corporation in San Diego a and Joel Fashingbauer, the president and COO of Silicon Springs Ventures in Palm Desert. The criteria that they used to judge us was based on our app’s design, creativity, potential impact and how well it helped people become more physically active

Now, the thing that made Code 4 Health different than any other startup weekend or hackathon out there was the big emphasis on building health-based apps while being as healthy as possible while building them.

Most hackathons run for a weekend (typically 72 hrs) where entrepreneurs, developers and designers build something from nothing. In doing so they will often stay up all night with 2-3hrs of sleep while on Heavy doses of coffee, greasy pizza, red bulls to keep you focused and beer to calm the nerves when you’re pitching.

Code 4 Health wanted to stay away from all that and that’s why they called it a code-a-thon not a hackathon.

They had catered very healthy meals for us, had stretching sessions, created an app for us called snoozercise to measure how much sleep & steps we took during the code-a-thon and even had us run a 5k (myself and 4 others acutely ran the whole thing). Looking back now it probably wasn’t the best idea to have a bunch of tech nerds running a 5k when we could of just been more focused on building our apps, but I do understand and appreciate where they were coming from.

Anyways, the winners of the code-a-thon got three years of mentoring, facilities in the Coachella Valley iHub, access to the Palm Springs Accelerator Campus and 3 of those rad looking Jawbone Big JamBox.

The rest of us did not leave empty handed, we all got to keep our Jawbone UP that they gave us at the beginning of the code-a-thon, we had our rooms at the Ace Hotel, meals & travel paid for and we got to make friends with like minded people.

Overall it was an amazing code-a-thon! We have a few more on the way and we’ll keep you in the loop.

SXSW V2V Showcases #VegasTech

This week Las Vegas has the amazing opportunity to host SXSW V2V. Most people are familiar with the original SXSW conference in Austin which brings together a huge tech community (SXSW Interactive), music (SXSW Music) and film (SXSW Film). In fact, the SXSW interactive had grown so large that it literally had outgrown the city of Austin.

SXSW V2V was created hopefully as a partial release valve for the tremendous growth of SXSW interactive. Certainly SXSW interactive will still continue to happen in Austin, but the organizers of SXSW wanted to find a way to expand what they could do to help the innovator and startup community. Considering Austin’s challenges with hosting a big conference it made logical sense why SXSW would turn to Las Vegas for their expansion. Plus, the expansion married perfectly with the amazing growth of the Vegas Tech startup community. Oh the serendipity of it all.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure how well the SXSW V2V event would showcase what was happening with the Tech Community in Las Vegas. A day and a half into the event and I’m very happy with how well SXSW V2V has showcased what’s happening in Las Vegas.

The Vegas Tech startup showcase was certainly headlined by the Tony Hsieh keynote where he asked, “How many chances do you get to shape the future of a city?” Although, I expect the more powerful impact will come from the interactions with hundreds of Vegas Tech entrepreneurs I’ve seen scattered throughout SXSW V2V. Whether it’s Scott Allison from Teamly and Andrew Crump from Bluefields together with Representative Joe Heck talking about the broken immigration system or the Vegas native Maren Donovan from Zirtual talking crowdsourcing and outsourcing on their respective panels, the Vegas Startup community was well placed throughout the SXSW V2V programming. The Startup Spotlight Showcase also included many Vegas companies including: Cubby Road, ALICE Receptionist, and Tracky. Plus, how beautiful was it to see the Gold Spike filled to capacity with startup companies and innovators? I even saw a number of Vegas Startup companies at the evening event that couldn’t afford to attend the full SXSW V2V and didn’t realize they could volunteer.

Much credit goes to Christine Auten and Hugh Forrest, organizers of SXSW, for reaching out to the Vegas community over a year ago to make sure that the community was well represented and integrated into the event. Hopefully we’ve been able to support their efforts as much as they’ve worked to support our community.

Of course, there’s still a day and a half left of SXSW V2V, but I can already say that it’s been a huge success for Las Vegas. I don’t think that Vegas itself could have planned a better showcase event for what’s happening in the Las Vegas tech community.

I look forward to many more years of growth together with SXSW V2V.

UNLV Solar Decathlon Team

If you haven’t seen what the UNLV Solar Decathlon team is doing, you should check it out. They’ve been all over Las Vegas talking about their project. They’ve got a great story and it’s great to see UNLV students doing such amazing work. I caught up with them at an event I attended a little while back and had them do a short video talking about their project. It was just a quick video on my cell phone camera, so excuse the poor audio and video, but it gets the idea across.

If you want to see them in person, the UNLV Solar Decathlon Team will be the guest speakers at the Las Vegas Green Chamber of Commerce July 9th business mixer at the Springs Preserve.
When: 09 Jul 2013 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Location: Springs Preserve 297 S. Valley View, Las Vegas, NV 89107

The Las Vegas Green Chamber of Commerce will donate $10 of each guest and at door ticket to support the UNLV Solar Decathlon Team.

If you can’t attend the event, but would still like to support the UNLV Solar Decathlon team, check out their fundraising progress on their website.

Vegas Startup Company Sport-Social Wins $100k from Project Vesto

A big congrats to Las Vegas startup company Sport-Social for winning the Project Vesto competition. I couldn’t be happier to see a Las Vegas startup company take home the $100k prize. The following is the full press release that details the announcement.
