Bring your entrepreneurship and lets build a company in 54 hours
Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
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.
Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
- 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
- Benefits and discounts from our global partners
- One-on-one time with amazing mentors
- A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.

Coaches and Mentors
As a young professional, making changes to create more connected environments can mean happier clients, better products, creative content development & distribution, and stronger financial performance. Such issues are prevalent in mid-sized entities when businesses transition from startup to big companies. This phase is filled with absolute treachery (communication, sales, operating protocols, training, hiring, acquisitions, etc.).
I spent my college days receiving guidance from a repository of knowledge-wealthy mentors in the fields of engineering, sales, politics, arts, and finance. I would translate this over into professional development classes for peers and help to their eventual placement in jobs, research, or passion projects. I archived my lessons into LP25: Influence (25 Weeks of Philosophy).
After graduating in biomedical engineering, pre-med, pre-law, I found that my skills uniquely suited what I felt to be an asset for consulting. I had process, research, and critical thinking skills with the ability to merge multidisciplinary subjects into single ideas. This became my premise for developing thought leadership in my post-college job as a salesperson. Through the application of those skills, I was able to perform very strongly and make an impact for my company and within the industry.
Shortly thereafter, a co-worker was inspired by my book to create a company centered around providing access to opportunities and resources for people with passions. So, I began working as the strategist and marketer for PEAR'd.
Previously, was the principal consultant at iFusion, a go-to-market consultancy offering fractional CMO services to tech companies from series A onward. Projects primarily focused on customer journey mapping, marketing plan development and operationalizing the marketing and sales function to optimize lead to sales funnels.
Well-versed in developing marketing and sales strategy for enterprise, SaaS and marketplacele-sided business models. Experienced helping technology companies that provide solutions to SMB, CMOs, Retail/eCommerce, and consumers.
Author of articles on social media for iMedia Connection, Chiefmarketer and Association Publishing and Atlanta Business magazines, and has provided expert commentary to business publications including DemandGen Report, Newspaper & Technology and DM News.
Seth’s work and his startups have been featured prominently by several news outlets, including TechCrunch and Apple.
