StartupWeekend EDU happens this weekend in Baltimore. We still have openings for educators, developers, designers, and business developers to take part. Register now.
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials.
The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
StartupWeekend Education introduces educators and community leaders to “No Talk, All Action” and brings together an invaluable community of entrepreneurial minds. Education events are conceptualized with the goal of improving education for everyone by solving real problems constantly faced by educators – over the course of one weekend. With community-building as one of the key defining aspects behind the events, these events are structured to bring together educators from the local community so that they have a valuable space to address and solve problems.
