As a entrepreneur, you're constantly examining where needs aren't being met. Startup Weekend is a great worldwide entrepreneurship event that helps people in the community grow their business ideas over a condensed 72 hour period. As a former attendee I realized the value of this event and saw the need to ensure everyone from the community had access to its opportunity. I pitched the idea to the parent organization to strengthen the event's accessibility for the disabled community. With their support I lead and co-organized a local event in Portland, OR we called Startup Weekend Access that developed a blueprint on how to better include and enable people from the disabled community. Using the tools we learned from this weekend. We worked to implement them into future events held worldwide.
