Why Sponsor Startup Weekend Springfield?

Local businesses need and thrive from startup companies. Every business needs a lot from its community. From financing (hello, Mr. Banker), to a facility (real estate), to sales (hey community members!) startup companies do so much good for our local economy.

In the next few slides we'll explain what Startup Weekend is, and what it can do for you and your business.

If you don’t know briefly, Startup Weekend is a global organization that provides the opportunity to cities across the world to join forces, resources, and minds to create a company in 54 hours. In short, it’s like a slumber party for adults…but a productive one where you form teams and create the company of your dreams.

The 3rd Startup Weekend Springfield is happening June 9th, 10th, and 11th!
