You can't hold a Startup Weekend event without hosting a pre-party! This year your Startup Weekend organizers have partnered with the 804RVA Tech Meetup Group to bring you one heck of a pre-party. Our pre-party will be held at 804RVA on Wednesday, August 27th. Why should you attend? Here are 7 great reasons!

1. Get a leg up on the competition by getting your networking started early. The Startup Weekend Pre-party is a great way to meet people before you spend 56 hours with them.

2. You'll get a chance to brush up on your pitching skills in our speed pitching session.

3. Hear some insights for making the most of your weekend from our speakers.

4. You'll get to meet a ton of past attendees and mentors who've already been through the process. Come with questions, leave with answers and tips.

5. If you've never been to a Startup Weeked, this event is perfect for getting a preview of what it's like.

6. This is a party designed to show you some Startup Weekend fun! All of this fun will be fueled by snacks and beverages in true Startup Weekend fashion.

7. Win prizes (including free tickets to Startup Weekend, one on one pitch practice from the Lighthouse Labs directors, and coworking memberships)!

Oh yeah, it's also free to attend.
