Startup Weekend, the grassroots movement that has fueled the entrepreneurial energy of hackers, hustlers, dreamers and doers across the world, will return to Detroit the weekend of Friday, November 14, 2014. The sixth Startup Weekend hosted in Detroit, Startup Weekend Detroit will bring together Metro Detroit's best and brightest to pitch ideas, form teams and launch startups over the course of just 54 hours.
Additionally, this special event will celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week 2014, the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. As part of this program, teams formed at Startup Weekend Detroit will go on to battle against the startups launched in more than 200 competing cities as part of the 5th annual Global Startup Battle.
Last year, VisionBoards.co not only took home 1st place at Startup Weekend Detroit, but also went on to win the Innovator's Circle powered by .CO. We're hoping to send another team to the finals again this year.
