Startup Weekend Laramie is where businesses do startup. Pitch an idea, join a team, and develop entrepreneurial skills in a fun supportive environment. The weekend starts off Friday evening where participants will pitch their ideas to solve problems. Everyone gets to vote on their favorites and then, after you have formed a team, you're off and running with top mentors, help from industry experts, and much more! We don't just want you to think about a business model or write a business plan. Be surrounded by people who want to think outside of the box, and learn and test out their entrepreneurial skills! The weekend finishes off with final presentations from each team. Awesome prizes will be awarded to the top teams!

Techstars Startup Weekend in Laramie is the place for entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, designers, & developers.

It’s a place for companies to send talented employees who will return to work with fresh ideas that may improve your business.

If you already have a job but have that entrepreneurial spirit, that’s OK!!! Don’t quit your day job. Spend the weekend and learn how to create a side business that you can earn extra money in your spare time.

Learn how to solve customers' problems more efficiently and effectively.

Commit your weekend to have some of the most fun you will ever have and learning some valuable business skills that will help skyrocket your career. Will your brain be tired at the end? - Yes, but you will also be full of yummy food, coffee, inspiration, and ideas!

We want absolutely anyone and everyone to come!

We don't care if you're fresh out of high school, taking organic chemistry, living with your parents, working a 9-5 job, stay-at-home parent, or bored of retirement. Everyone is welcome.
