Ready to spring your ideas into action?

Join us on March 22-24 for the next edition of Startup Weekend Columbus at the new ScriptDrop location.

For all event details, please visit http://swcbus.com. Follow up on Facebook and Twitter.

What happens at Startup Weekend? In 54 hours you and your team of talented people across all disciplines will turn an idea into a reality. This is where entrepreneurs, designers, coders, hustlers, and innovators in Central Ohio come together to prototype and validate business ideas for viable ventures.

It all happens in one weekend, so bring lots of energy!

On the first night you'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

Feel like you might not be totally prepared? Don’t worry, we all begin at the same starting point. This means your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues.

Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely!

Please refer to swcbus.com for the weekend schedule. We'll update this site continuously with more mentors and judges over the next few weeks. Everyone is welcome and no previous entrepreneurial experience is necessary!

It’s a full weekend of discovery, connection, and a fast launch of ideas to businesses. Don’t wait, get your ticket today!

Early Bird Tickets are available for a limited time! ($50 instead of full price of $100)
