A quick thought about Startup BarCamp. #startupbcs

Startup BarCamp First and fore most i want to thank the organizers and the participants for an inspiring and motivating day.
I have arrived late to the event and only was through the second half of the day but got very good presenters and some interesting people who have put their heart and information out for the others to comment and help out.
The day was great and i dont want to restate the info already typed here, and if you were in the Startup BarCamp you are welcomed to put your notes up the wki page.
What i want to reffer to was my suggestion to the next Startup BarCamp.
The question asked was what do you want to have in the next Startup BarCamp, a predefined agenda or in the tradition of BarCamps a fluid on the spot agenda.
My suggestion was to make it a semi fluid agenda holding spots for subjects and letting presenters present in a fluid manner inside the time slots i.e.

  • 10:00am-11:00pm Investor Relations
  • 10:00am-11:00pm Idea growing
  • 12:00pm-1:00pm Lunch
  • 1:00pm-3:00pm How we did it
  • etc.

This will give the people a more coherent way of knowing what to attend and when to wake up.
But i am now thinking that bar camp with all the intensity and fluidity needs to stay fully fluid.
The best example was the Pitch Your Idea session that took more time then most of the presos and was helpful to every one in the room.
So what is your take on this?

  1. As I’m concerned, I enjoyed the pitch and the “30 ways to fail” for the interaction and fluidity. A fixed convention can let people know what and when to see a conference but you will probably lose a lot doing this.
