What is the cost of Macon Startup Week?
Macon Startup Week is 100% free, whether you stay for one session or for the whole day. Not only will you receive great content, you’ll also enjoy coffee, snacks, lunch, and swag! You can’t beat that!
Is this the first year?
Startup Weekend was founded by Techstars in 2007 and Startup Week was founded in 2010. Macon introduced Startup Week in 2017.
Do I have to attend every event, or can I just come to 1 event?
Great question! We work hard to ensure the content for each session is applicable to everyone, regardless of the stage your business is in. We hope you’ll enjoy as many sessions as your schedule will allow, but you are welcome to come to whichever sessions you’d like. We just ask that you register here to help us plan for attendance.
What is Hopin?
Hopin is the virtual platform that will host Macon Startup Week 2020. It is similar to Zoom, but offers more of a community feel.
How do I attend Macon Startup Week 2020
After registering to attend Macon Startup Week, you will recieve a link the day before the Hopin Event. Click on the link and click on the blue Join Event button. You will be directed to either sign in or create a new account if you are new to Hopin.
Can I access Hopin via my phone?
Hopin’s web app is now available on mobile devices for attendees! While still in beta, attendees can attend Macon Startup week from their phones and tablets with limited functionality. They can view the Stage, view Sessions, view Expo, chat, and use the Networking features. If this meets your needs then you can try to access via your mobile phone. Note that you cannot participate in Sessions or the Expo, on-camera but simply view them.
How do I interact with speakers on the Stage or in a Session?
Please type in your questions in the Stage or Session Chat. We hope that all speakers will have time to address all chat questions and we will have tech moderators handling chat questions as they come in.
How does Chat, Polls, and People work?
What is Hopin Networking? What happens when I click the Ready button?
When an attendee clicks the Ready button they are immediately matched with a random fellow attendee via face-to-face video, similar to chat. Meetings end automatically after 3 minutes unless you choose to speak longer by hitting the extend button. Attendees can leave at any time.
