Startup Weekend University

July 9-11

Startup Weekend is an exciting and immersive foray into the world of startups. Over an action-packed three days, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders and sponsors to show you how to get more done faster — and, maybe even start that business. Our Smart Cities focus is open to any idea that promotes community growth, equity, sustainability, or improves the quality of life for residents.

What Happens

You’ll be a part of a dynamic team that develops a problem-solving idea into a real business model.

Day 1

Network with fellow cohort members, pitch your idea in 60 seconds, select a top project and join a team.

Day 2

Following a lean canvas model, you’ll work with the team to develop the product and survey customers.

Day 3

Your team presents your product or idea to a panel of judges. 1st place, 2nd place, and crowd favorite prizes are awarded.

When It Happens

This event occurs several times throughout the year, and takes place Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.
