Develop your ideas and experience Entrepreneurial Learning in a weekend!
AWC & NAU-Yuma Startup Weekend is the place to look for possible answers and experiencing learning to develop and validate your idea, create a prototype of your idea, work in teams, receive feedback from experienced faculty and entrepreneurs, and get recognized for your efforts, all in one weekend.
What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your minimum viable product (MVP), that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
AWC & NAU-Yuma Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
- 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
- Benefits and discounts from our global partners
- One-on-one time with amazing mentors
- A new network of participants representing problem-solvers, developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
- All the Internet and coffee you can consume.
