    The call goes out to designers and developers with a passion for turning ideas into working innovations.

    Dave Heller is joined by Nicholas Gunther, lead organizer for Philadelphia Startup Weekend, “an immersive three day event where participants can go from idea to something real.”

    Designers and developers in are encouraged to collaborate with each other to make an undeveloped idea and turn it into something real.  But Gunther says it doesn’t have to be totally finished. “We want to encourage people to get to the point where they have a working prototype that can then be the center piece for that they want to do with it afterwards.”

    Philadelphia Startup Weekend runs from the evening of November 11th and goes through Sunday November 13th.
