  • About the event

    About
    Startup Weekend is a weekend-long event that allows anyone to turn an idea into reality. In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. Here you will look for a team, create a prototype of an idea, validate a business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs.

    Who is this for?
    ANYONE! Think of it like a hackathon, but for designers, engineers, and business people.

    How does it work?
    • Friday evening: Share ideas & form teams around the top ideas
    • Saturday: Validate and build on the idea
    • Sunday evening: Pitch to a panel of judges
