Event Details

At Startup Weekend, you'll be immersed in an environment where startup magic, becomes startup reality.  

Startup Weekend will help participants learn how to launch a business, a product, or service.  It will also help participants explore their creativity, experience what it's like to create a business plan, learn how to pitch you idea and help you build an amazing network! 

In A Nutshell: 

Friday: Anyone can pitch an idea (and everyone is encouraged to pitch), everyone votes on the ideas that are pitched, teams are formed around the top ideas (5-7 teams get formed).  
Saturday: Teams validate ideas, research customers, create a business plan and work to build a prototype that demonstrates the potential of their business.  
Sunday: Finishing touches are put on the business plans & prototypes, pitches are developed and rehearsed and the events 
culminates Sunday evening in a pitch competition where teams present their businesses and demonstrate their prototype to a panel of judges.  

About Startup Weekend: Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.  Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.  Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.  Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
