Description

Let's Start Something Up!

The French American School of Puget Sound (FASPS) is proud to host our fourth-annual Mercer Island Youth Startup Weekend, especially designed for you, the next generation of entrepreneurs-in-the-making who are currently in grades 6, 7, 8, and 9. Our team of highly innovative and connected coaches, mentors, and judges will facilitate exercises and experiences that will teach you, our entrepreneurs, how to come up with business ideas, conduct market research, prototype, work in teams, and “pitch” your ideas to a room full of people. You will finish the weekend with the confidence you need to innovate and create in all aspects of life.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: Everyone 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 weekend-long frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation, culminating with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. Everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.

Best of Luck, Entrepreneurs … Now Let’s Start Something Up!
