Young professionals don’t just work for companies, they start their own…
Launch a new company over the course of a weekend! Part hackathon, part business plan competition, 100% exhilarating experience. Whether you are an aspiring entrepreneur or just want to get a taste of life at an early-stage startup company, Startup Weekend Gainesville is the perfect opportunity.
On Friday, participants brainstorm ideas and form teams around the best ones, then it’s a 48-hour sprint to validate ideas, build a demo product, and craft a business plan. The climax of the weekend is an investor pitch a la Shark Tank on Sunday evening to a panel of judges – all local investors and successful entrepreneurs – who choose the weekend’s winners. Top teams walk away with prizes such as free office space, mentorship & legal services to help keep the startup going.
