Calling all entrepreneurs! Startup Weekend is a nationwide effort to promote and encourage entrepreneurship, creativity, and stimulate positive change in a very local and grassroots kind of way. The event gives people a forum to present ideas for a business, website, invention, app, community project, or any other creative idea. Teams are formed around those ideas and the whole weekend is structured to help those teams take the first steps in making their ideas a reality. At the end of the weekend, the teams of entrepreneurs present a minimum viable product to judges from our community and are scored on their business model and execution. Many of the teams from StartupWeekend continue to work on these ideas and grow to become the newest generation of small businesses and startup companies in our community.
