Be Dangerous at Gangplank's Startup Weekend Chandler
Have a Taste for Danger?
Gangplank is hosting a collaboration of spirited entrepreneurs to pitch their vision and actually bring them into reality in one weekend. Gangplank has been an incubator for many multi-million dollar companies, some of which would never have existed without this annual event.
Do you think you have the next million dollar idea? The next idea that could change the world? Are you passionate about something but not sure about product-market fit yet? Maybe you're just sick and tired of the way things are and want to do something about it. Join us in this incredible 3-day event to find equally passionate individuals to help launch an idea into a reality.
(In order to protect organizers, we stipulate a 7-day no-refund policy in Eventbrite (to protect food orders, SWAG, etc.)
