Develop a venture in 54 hours!
You'll be signing up for a 54-hour frenzy where you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors, cofounders, and sponsors who are there to help you get your idea off the ground. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, the weekend will culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations where your team will have the opportunity to pitch to judges and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs.
The theme of this startup weekend is social impact, so we'll be supporting ideas that will have a postive impact on society and contribute to a brighter future for our world. Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on before.
