Do I need to come with an idea?

If you have an idea for a startup, then we'll look forward to hearing your 60 second pitch Friday night. If you don't have an idea, that's fine, too. Pitching an idea is not required although you might find yourself so inspired that you end up sharing an idea you've been thinking about for years, or something last minute you think of during the event (pitching is a great experience and invaluable practice for public speaking). Either way, you'll become part of a team and spend the weekend learning about the startup ideation process. If you have more questions, check out the Startup Weekend First Timers FAQ!

Join us for a weekend you'll never regret!
