Techstars Startup Weekend

Community Event

*This event is not associated with The Mercantile; we love our community and thought you should know about it.

Techstars Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event, where attendees pitch ideas, form teams and start companies. The event is community-focused and will provide a place for budding entrepreneurs to find co-founders, mentors, and momentum for their ideas.

Participants will get to know each other Friday evening and, those who have business ideas they would like to share will have 60 seconds to pitch their best idea to the group. Top ideas will emerge and then teams will be formed around those ideas. Teams will work through Saturday and Sunday to develop projects and will present the result of their efforts on Sunday evening to an audience of judges and potential investors.

Don't consider yourself an entrepreneur? Every startup needs a support network of marketers, business professionals, developers, designers, and just people with some experience to share. Come out and learn what it's like to be a part of the exciting world of startups - you never know where it will take you!

Registration fees include all meals, Friday evening through Sunday afternoon: Registration is $50 per person. Community and family members are encouraged to join in for Sunday evening presentations.
