Event description

Description

Be a part of the premier LGBTQA-themed Startup Weekend!

The purpose of this event is to inspire potential entrepreneurs in the LGBTQA community to learn the ropes of validating an idea for a startup or lifestyle business and turn that idea into a business venture.

In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.

If you can't commit to the whole weekend, you can check out the presentation/demo on Sunday or volunteer.

Startup Weekend HackOut is being organized in partnership with Techstars, which helps entrepreneurs raise startup funding and gain critical insight to help launch their businesses, StartOut, the national nonprofit supporting LGBTQIA entrepreneurs, and Lesbians Who Tech, a global community of 25,000+ queer women and gender nonconforming people in tech (and our allies) in over 37 cities around the world.
