Triad Startup Weekend

Do you have a great business idea but need help getting it launched off the ground? Do you have a business idea that you think is great but aren’t really sure? Triad Startup Weekend is the best, fastest and most fun way to answer these questions and more.
Startup Weekend is an intensive immersion in start-up methods and is the best way to meet potential collaborators, mentors, investors and leaders in the start-up ecosystem. It’s an experiential model that takes you out of books and into the real world with the experts you need to know.
Now in its 8th year in the Triad, the crash course is led by the global experts at Tech Stars. These business builders have a passion for sharing what they have gained from both their successes and failures so that you can model what works and avoid what doesn’t on your road to a scaleable business.
The weekend starts with each attendee pitching their ideas and getting to know each other. Out of those ideas, the top 5-10 are chosen by popular vote and participants form teams to expand on the ideas. Expert mentors then lead, guide and encourage the teams through the business development process. The weekend culminates in a pitch competition to a panel of judges comprised of local entrepreneurs, coaches and investment experts.
The winners will receive up to $10,000 value in software and marketing services, but everyone will win the knowledge to move their own projects forward.
Due to the long-term success of previous Startup Weekend events in the Triad, we’ve been able to significantly lower the cost of attendance. The prices are so reasonable you really can’t afford not to attend to give your idea its best chance of success.
Startup Weekend is co-hosted by local ecosystem members Flywheel Coworking and the Center for Design Innovation (CDI).
Don’t hesitate to check out the detailed information and registration. Hope to see you November 11-13 at Triad Startup Weekend.
