Are you a student (Grade 6-9) who likes to come up with big ideas, invent things, work with others, and learn skills that will help you with school and a future job? We want YOU to come to the second edition of FASPS Startup Weekend!
Startup Weekend is an entrepreneurial education in 54 hours! All Startup Weekend events for adults and students follow the same basic model: participants pitch ideas and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it's a frenzy of work all weekend to develop those ideas into potential businesses and products! Ideas can be related to products, games, services, food, tech, social entrepreneurship, and much more (click here to see a wrapup of last year's event)! With help from expert mentors and coaches to guide them in the process, students prepare for final presentations on Sunday of their business pitch. Everyone is guaranteed to leave the event energized and excited, with many new skills and ideas.
If you have ever wanted to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, this is your chance!
