Startup Weekend: Where Ideas Become A Reality

Join us on November 10-12, 2017 for a hands-on startup experience where you can pitch ideas, join a team, and build a company in 54 hours.
  
 
Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Redding Startup Weekend is the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for all entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs, and subject matter experts. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.
 

Register today and be inspired to take action. It can change your life.

FAQ
Do I need to have or bring an idea?
No! But, many people come and realize that they already have an idea or come up with one on the spot! 

What skills do I need to come? 
None! The most important thing to bring with you is curiosity and an eagerness to learn!

Is Startup Weekend right for me?
If you are interested or curious in entrepreneurship or business, the answer is yes!
