Startup Weekend Anchorage
Startup Weekends is a 54-hour event designed to provide experiential education for creators, executors, and innovators. The weekend events are centered on action, innovation, and education. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through testing, business model development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekend culminates in Sunday night demos to a panel of potential investors and local entrepreneurs. Participants are challenged with building functional startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.

Who you’ll meet at Startup Weekend
Startup Weekends attendees’ backgrounds are roughly 50% creators (developers, coders, designers, tinkerers, artists) and 50% executors (marketing, finance, law, business strategy) or a combination of both. Roughly 80% of attendees plan on continuing to work on their startup after the weekend.

What you’ll get out of the event
