Startup Weekend is the world's connection point for entrepreneurs. This weekend-long event provides hands-on experiences where seasoned and aspiring entrepreneurs come together to share ideas, form teams, create an MVP, and pitch the concept to a panel of distinguished judges at the end of 54-hours. Participants will learn how to launch a business, a product or service while they: explore their creativity, experience what it's like to create a business plan, and learn how to pitch.
The problem we're solving is that STEM and Entrepreneurship programs aren't available to all.
This event provides the opportunity for the entire community to get involved in a weekend-long educational program exposing all members of the community to great opportunities to learn about entrepreneurship and leadership.
The longterm impact is that students see the value in the community, they understand entrepreneurship and how they can be apart of it and feel empowered, with a better network, to seek out more education and programs.
