What is 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 entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on an 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.

We begin with open mic pitches on Friday where attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.

It doesn't matter what you do or where you come from; Startup Weekend is designed as an inclusive event and program that brings all sorts of people together including...

Aspiring & experienced entrepreneurs

Developers and other tech-related professionals

Designers of all types

Non-technical talent (i.e., business, sales, finance, legal, etc.)

Students from universities and even high schools

Professionals looking to switch careers

Passionate visionaries
