Startup Weekend: Where Ideas Become A Reality
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 technical and non-technical 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.
