Startup Weekend Panama City 2017
Fri, Mar 31, 2017, 5:30 PM – Sun, Apr 2, 2017, 9:30 PM CDT
Startup Weekend, where entrepreneurs, developers, designers, artists, business development types come together to pitch an idea and learn how to launch a business, all in one weekend. The event is an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded individuals, test ideas, meet potential co-founders and helpt to build the entrepreneurial community in Northwest Florida!
Two educational and inspirational additions this year have been added to share knowledge and product. Speakers will inspire through workshops on Saturday where entrepreneurs can step in no matter their level of business acumen and learn more about the next steps for growth. On Sunday a showcase by a local K-8 school, Rising Leader Academy who is currently implementing an Entrepreneurship curriculum, will bring students marketing self-made or produced products, will tabletop display and sell their wares for purchase. This session will be open to the public.
With an overwhelming response last year by the public to be in the audience for the final pitches on Sunday, there will be an opportunity to purchase tickets for that session, too. For more information visit our FACEBOOK.
According to Pamela Kidwell, Executive Director/Business Innovation Center, “We have coaches specializing in all aspects of marketing; as well as, product design and engineering types. Last year’s event provided the space, time and collaboration to entrepreneurs to come together and share and learn. Past participants tell us how much they enjoy the event, and we are grateful to be a part of such an exciting weekend.
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.
