Startup Weekend Black Hills Spearfish

A drop of water. Innocuous and unassuming. When combined with hundreds of millions of slippery friends it becomes a small puddle. Something larger than itself. Over time this puddle becomes a small pond. As our pond grows, it erodes the constraints holding it back from realizing its true potential and ultimate purpose. Our water drop breaks free and begins to make its impact on the world. A raging river carving away soil and rock. Creating something so valuable, so impactful, that people far and wide flock to it.
Your idea. Your dream. Your drop of water. Just waiting to carve out its place in the world. Wait no longer. Startup Weekend Black Hills Spearfish.
You have an idea in your head, and it might stay there for years, but until you say it out loud, get feedback, and learn whether consumers actually want it, it can’t become anything.
Startup Weekend will equip you with the resources, connections, and knowledge to go from idea to execution. And as you learn how to create a real company, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, cofounders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.
If not now, when?
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event designed to provide superior experiential education for designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts of all stripes. The weekend events are centered on action, innovation, and education in an encouraging environment where you fail fast to find success sooner. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through testing, business model development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate 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.
