Middle and High School students who have a problem they need solved, want to learn more about start-up culture, love coding or design or just bringing an awesome team together - this is YOUR EVENT.
Building on the nationally recognized StartUp Weekend model and pivoting it for students, the CO+HOOTS Foundation has brought together entrepreneurs and experts, volunteers and community leaders to offer students a glimpse into what it takes to build a company and a product from scratch.
Our last event in August brought 50 together students with brilliant ideas, determination and the desire to learn. We had dozens of volunteers and mentors on site working with the teams to help take their ideas through the process of business development and preparing them to pitch to a team of judges.
The first Youth Startup Weekend was way too much fun to leave it as a one- time thing... so it's back! For 3 days at the end of February in the beautiful CO+HOOTS coworking space, we will brainstorm, create and pitch our most genius ideas. At the end of our time together, all the teams will have the opportunity to present their pitch to industry professionals, get feedback and support, and leave the knowledge that you created something great!
*REMINDER: This event is NOT overnight. Attendees will go home and sleep in their own beds each night!
