Learn how to launch a startup... over the course of a weekend!
Join us for a fun-filled, hands-on, educational experience that will enable you to build, validate and launch your tech startup idea over the course of a weekend. Whether you're a hacker (developer), hustler (business/sales) or hipster (designer), there is something for you!On the first evening, you'll either pitch or join a team around the top ideas. Throughout the course of the weekend, you'll work with your teams and coaches to validate and develop a prototype. You'll present your final product on Sunday evening for a panel of judges and fun startup awards.
What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! 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.
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! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
