A brief history of Startup weekends:

In 2007 Andrew Hyde founded Startup Weekend in Boulder, Colorado. Startup Weekend brought 70 entrepreneurs together. In January 2010, Marc Nager and Clint Nelsen took over full ownership and registered the organization as a not-for-profit, relocating to Seattle. As of the acquisition, Startup Weekend had organized approximately 80 events in the USA, England, Germany, and Canada. The model quickly expanded to cities around the world.

To date, more than 1000 Startup weekend events have been held in 480 countries.


Stem cell: 

Stem cells are unique cells, they have the ability to differentiate into many different types of cells. They can also replicate rapidly. Stem cells play a huge part in the body’s healing process, and the introduction of new stem cells has always shown great promise in the treatment of many conditions. It wasn’t until we found out where and how to isolate these cells that we started using them for transplants.

Stem cell technology is a rapidly developing field, which combines the efforts of cell biologists, geneticists, and clinicians and offers hope of effective treatment for a variety of malignant and non-malignant diseases. Stem cells survive well and show stable division in culture, making them ideal targets for in vitro manipulation.
