Chapel Hill, NC – Are you ready for a third Triangle Startup Weekend (TSW) this year? The 2 previous TSW’s were not enough for you? Well, if you listen to Mital Patel, a local lawyer and technologist, the Triangle is primed and ready for many more startup weekends than 3 per year.
What is a Startup weekend?
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
The November TSW
The November TSW does not have a specific industry focus and will be held at the Frank Porter Graham Student Union of the UNC – Chapel Hill campus. This location is a ‘new idea’ in that this TSW will be held on the campus of one of our premier Triangle University Centers (tapped into raw talent).
There is currently an early bird registration with a discount for students. There is also a Demo Day registration for those that want to see the results of the weekend (highly recommended for those interested in the ideas coming out of the Triangle Technology Ecosystem).
Don’t hesitate, register today as tickets are limited.
