Event description

Description

Techstars and Colorado State University’s College of Business Institute for Entrepreneurship invite you to participate in Fort Collins Startup Weekend. All majors, backgrounds, and experience levels are encouraged to participate!

Startup Weekend is a 3 day event for CSU students and community members who want to look for a team, create a prototype of an idea, validate a business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend. On the last day, teams will pitch the concepts they create to an expert panel of judges and compete for prizes that will help them make their dreams a reality.

Whether you’re in the arts, engineering, veterinary medicine, business or another discipline, startup weekend is about innovating with others to pitch the next big idea!

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely.

Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

This is a weekend long experience and your ticket includes:

  • 7 meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
  • One-on-one time with amazing mentors
  • A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs ready, like you, to change the world.

Register before February 16 to receive our discounted early bird rates.
