Panama City Startup Weekend 2017 - Learn, Network, Startup
This is the fourth year for Startup Weekend for Panama City, and the organizers have set high marks for another tremendous success. Beginning with networking, entrepreneur perspective, and open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their teams. Saturday and Sunday, teams focus on product development, proof of concept, lean startup methodologies, and a viable product. On Sunday evening, teams demo their prototype concept and receive feedback from a panel of experts, plus a chance to win prizes and bragging rights as the Best 2017 Big Idea.
Two educational and inspirational additions this year have been added to share knowledge and product. Speakers will inspire through workshops on Saturday where entrepreneurs can step in no matter their level of business acumen and learn more about the next steps for growth. On Sunday a showcase by a local K-8 school, Rising Leader Academy who is currently implementing an Entrepreneurship curriculum, will bring students marketing self-made or produced products, will tabletop display and sell their wares for purchase. This session will be open to the public. With an overwhelming response last year by the public to be in the audience for the final pitches on Sunday, there will be an opportunity to purchase tickets for that session, too.

At 21, after a mission for his church in Albania, he bought and sold printing and graphics services. Corey taught himself how to use a $400 Macintosh to produce graphics that he could sell. IKON Office Solutions then hired him to use his self-taught graphics skills to run a graphics department for them in Salt Lake City in 1998… the same year Corey married his beautiful bride, Jennifer.
Together, Jen and Corey have five wonderful children.
Corey has always had a passion for business, technology and education. So, after working in the office equipment industry for over 8 years, teaching graphic design for Web at University of Utah, serving as a Color Systems Specialist for Canon USA, and going back to school for an undergraduate in Information Technology and a Master in Business administration, both from University of Phoenix, he started Tribute Media in 2007.
Corey has recently turned the reigns of Tribute Media over to a long-time trusted employee and friend and moved on to the role of Founder/Chief Vision Officer. He is now ready for his next move -- to start up something new
