A couple years ago I was looking for some new, interesting volunteer opportunities and happened upon BarCamp Charlotte. I had never attended one before so didn’t know what to expect. I absolutely loved it! My first BarCamp (and all the ones thereafter) have been informative, creative, inspiring and fun. BarCamp is also an excellent opportunity to meet new people and network. At my third BarCamp I met an awesome event producer who was very involved in tech and we started a company based on a pitch that she gave.
Quite a few other startups have been borne from an idea pitched at BarCamp, as well. You can give a pitch on anything . Doesn’t have to be tech related. Whether you attend to pitch an idea or just to observe I highly recommend BarCamp.
Have you volunteered at a previous BarCamp Charlotte? What was it like? Tell us below and we might ask for your story too!
