The Importance of Designers and Techs


Every Startup Weekend group can benefit from having some designers and technical members.

If you’re a business-first person, and your skills fall outside the technical realm, make sure you’re encouraging programmers to join the fun. Websites and mobile apps go a long, long way towards communicating your short- and long-term goals as a venture, and you won’t have that unless you have people who can code and manipulate the Web space to fit your needs.

Designers, for whatever reason, sometimes get overlooked. But their creativity and ability to turn ideas into tangible visual pieces cannot be understated. Designers provide a unique skill set for any organization. (Video: Rise of the Designer)

Often the best teams at Startup Weekend are the teams with well-rounded abilities. Find each other. Value each other. Make it happen.
