MEGA Startup Weekend MaGIC will be taking place on May 27-29, combining the 3 industry themes of education, food, and tech. 

Startup Weekend MaGIC welcomes everyone to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (by popular vote) and embark on a 3-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback! Startup Weekend MaGIC is designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs and wannabe-entrepreneurs. 

Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. There will be prizes for every winner!

The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
