Triangle Maker Startup Weekend 2014 is proud to present one of the first maker startup weekends on the East Coast.
Join makers across the Triangle for a weekend focused on building cool, crazy, innovative physical products and launching companies around them. Tinker with state of the art tools provided by BetaVersity and meet design experts brought in by DXLab Design. We'll have micro-controllers, laser cutters, 3D printers, and an awesome makerspace for you to geek out on. The creation potential is only limited by your imagination.
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea. Teams organically form around the top ideas (determined by popular vote) and then dive into a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with a final presentation in front of a panel of judges who will offer critical feedback and suggestions.
Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. You do not need to be a designer or a coder to join; the only requirement is curiosity and a build-it mindset. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
In addition to a great weekend full of entrepreneurial activity, participants will receive:
- A t-shirt and lots of fun SWAG
- Food and drink to fuel your weekend (including some awesome after parties)
- Prizes for the winners of the final pitch event including a DXLab Design Sprint, $100 worth of 3D prints and 500 Royal Membership (maker space) from BetaVersity.
