  • 2 days 1 hour

The Startup Open is a hands-on entrepreneurship and innovation event that is open to everyone in Southwest Wisconsin + neighboring regions. No experience is required, and you don't need an idea, a business plan, or anything other than an open mind.

At the Startup Open you'll join a team and spend the weekend working on a business model, pitching, meeting mentors, and conducting customer discovery. The event will culminate in a pitch to venture capitalists and serial entrepreneurs.

The event is led by Maia Patrick Donohue who comes to Platteville after 8 years in the heart of Austin's startup ecosystem. Maia has led startup events across the United States, as well as in-person in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Brazil, Egypt, Malawi, South Korea, Israel, and more.

The Startup Open is a free event, though spots are limited. All applicants will be interviewed.
