Portland Startup Weekend Access 2014

Hello :)

Is there something in your life that gives you that nudge to keep pursuing your passions? To continue working on your idea? For me, those nudges, come from seeing other people work on their ideas and following their passions.

A few weekends ago I attended Portland Startup Weekend Access as a design mentor. This Startup Weekend was different than the others I have been to. The weekend was being geared towards individuals with disabilities in hopes to create an environment where anyone can innovate together. Pretty sweet concept! During the weekend, Shashi, the facilitator, had expressed that he hopes that there will never have to be a separate event for individuals with disabilities again. That every Startup Weekend from here on out will be made to accommodate everyone. Inspiring stuff! Nudges all around! :)

I knew I wanted to bring my camera along with me, so that is what I did! I was able to capture some clips that I felt conveyed the vibe of the entire weekend; exciting, fun & encouraging! Going to events like this really inspires me to continue working on my passions and my ideas. What gives you inspiration? What nudges you? Let me know in the comments below!

I hope you enjoy the video! Oh & the video doesn’t show this… but a team lead by an 11 year old won. #nudge #nudge #nudge
