Description

Startup Weekend Maui returns on November 16-18! Hosted by the Maui Economic Development Board (MEDB), this empowering event will provide active entrepreneurs with an opportunity to learn how to launch a company in 54 hours.

In just one weekend, participants will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. Surrounded by smart, passionate people and with the best tools and approaches at their disposal, they’ll take giant leaps in learning skills to create a business, work on a startup team, and connect with the right people and resources. Ultimately, it will be an unforgettable weekend that will put them on the pathway to success.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: On Friday, anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote); and then it’s a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. Coaches and mentors, successful in various areas of business, are available to provide feedback and to guide the teams through the process.

The weekend culminates on Sunday with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders and potential investors with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Early bird and student rates available. Meals are included. Reservations required, space is limited.

Presented by Maui Economic Development Board. Sponsored by County of Maui, Mayor's Office of Economic Development, Hawaii SCORE, HTDC, Pacific Media Group, Sultan Ventures, University of Hawaii Maui College, and XLR8HI.
