Nextiva (www.nextiva.com), leading provider of cloud-based business phone services, is pleased to announce its participation in the LA Startup Weekend from November 16-18, 2012 as a platinum-level sponsor. The 54-hour event is hosted by StartupWeekend.org and will be held at Coloft in Santa Monica, California. The collaborative, fast-paced weekend is designed around idea sharing and activities that encourage the launch of new startups into the market.
Startup Weekend, a global event, produced by non-profit organization StartupWeekend.org, is designed to let aspiring entrepreneurs learn the basics of founding a business and launching successful ventures. Startup Weekends are held in over 200 cities around the world to allow developers, designers, marketers and project managers the opportunity to pitch ideas, form teams and start new companies.
Throughout the weekend, teams will receive feedback from fellow attendees and create a business model, design and code their company's website, and validate a marketing plan. Members of the Nextiva team will actively participate as teams develop their startup ideas.
"After our success at Phoenix Startup Weekend last month, we jumped at the opportunity to participate in the Los Angeles event," says Nextiva VP of Customer Success, Yaniv Masjedi. "The passion that these entrepreneurs bring to the events is inspirational and we are excited to be able to provide them with feedback and Nextiva products to support their new ventures."
Nextiva will present the weekend winner with a start-up communications package, and all attendees will receive special offers designed to simplify their business communications.
