What is Startup Weekend

 What is Startup Weekend?

I get that a lot.

Let me try to answer  in several ways.

First watch this video about Evansville StartupWeeked Event.

It’s an intense weekend.

People walk away with ideas vetted and sometimes, businesses up and running in 52 hours or less (with lots of help). But it’s not about creating businesses. It’s about creating the entrepreneurial mindset.

 

But Even though it’s intense, we have tons of fun. The 1st year we had glow in the dark light saber gogurt (frozen) battles. Last year we did a Harlem Shake video. (  <– That was 11:30 ish Sat Night. We were all a little slap happy!

 

If you want to be a part of this year’s event, you can order tickets online here: (Hurry to get the early bird discount.)

 

These tickets will go fast and we do have limited space. The early bird is a great deal. You get an entrepreneurial education and all meals for the whole weekend!

 

If you don’t want to participate, we do have a need for volunteers.

 

Oh and most teams don’t know each other. You go there needing a developer or a marketing person or whatever, and find who you need there. It’s not meant to come with your best buds and work. It’s a meet new people and grow experience thing.

 

If you know of a company that would like to sponsor Evansville Startup Weekend, here is the info. We use the money for weekend costs, marketing, scholarships, prizes and food. (We take in-kind donations as sponsorships as well)

 

Did that answer your question?
