What is 24 hour business camp?

At the end of January 2009, in the middle of the dark swedish winter, around 90 exciting Swedish internet-entrepreneurs gather at Hasseludden Yasuragi, a spa and conference center outside Stockholm. Each of the 52 participating teams arrive at Hasseludden with an idea for a new web service that they would like to build.

After an initial teppanyaki-dinner, a good night's rest and some relaxation at the spa facilites, it's time to go to work. For 24 hours. When this time is up, each team will present their finished and (hopefully) fully working web service.

The whole event will be documented on the live blog, where videos and short interviews will be posted throughout these 24 hours.

The goal of the 24 hour business camp is to have fun, meet other entrepreneurs, test our creative limits, and inspire other people to build their own start-ups. The inspiration comes from the 24 hour dot com, a similiar but smaller event that took place in Berlin in 2004.

The event is organized by Ted Valentin, a swedish internet entrepreneur.
