Try out startup life without any risk!
Think it'd be fun to have a startup? Want to build something cool and quick and see if it works?
Take an idea in your head and make it happen?
Join in for the first Startup Weekend Cedar Rapids February 28 - March 2.
Startup Weekend is your chance to test your ideas and yourself in one epic 54-hour period.
Come in on Friday, February 28 with an idea you want to try out or join a team with an idea that intrigues you. As soon as you've got your team, get started building a prototype for your product or service and a plan for marketing and distributing it. On Saturday, you'll spend the day flushing out more details and getting out on the streets to test your idea with real potential customers. Sunday, you'll refine your prototype, your pitch and your plan and then present them that afternoon to a panel of successful entrepreneurs for honest feedback and great prizes.
This will be an unforgettable weekend!
Full of ups, downs, twists and turns, you and your idea will be put to the test but you'll also be surrounded by great resources, fantastic support and an endless supply of pizza and Redbull. You've got to try it!
Startup Weekend is perfect for developers, designers, marketing professionals, big idea people, salesmen (and women!).
It's the mix of all of these talents in one room that makes the experience unique, fun and an unbelievable learning experience. There's nothing like getting your hands dirty with a bunch of talented ambitious people!
