Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. The weekend events are centered on action, innovation, and education.
We love art & culture and believe the world has embarked on the creative renaissance. This renaissance marks an era where high-quality art is reaching new heights of social and cultural value. We aim to foster businesses that can transform the creative arts industry into a sustainable, commercially successful system.
Startup Weekend is for people with big ideas, creative minds, visual designers, web developers, coders, marketers, business developers, and any hard working person with a passion and genuine interest in the creative arts.
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.
