PITCH TO PROTOTYPE IN 3 DAYS (FRI, JAN 13 - SUN, JAN 15)
CALLING ASPIRING YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS

Visit our website here:

Twin Cities Startup Weekend Youth invites budding entrepreneurs in their sophomore, junior and senior year in high school, as well as freshmen, sophomores and juniors in college, to take an idea from nothing to something, pitch to prototype, in just three days.

Startup Weekend will propel students to launch creative business ideas by implementing the “Lean Startup” process. Students will pitch ideas, form teams around the top ideas, research their customers, and work intensely as teams to build a prototype that demonstrates the potential of their business. The event culminates in a “SHARK TANK” style pitch competition where teams present their business and demonstrate their prototype to a panel of local entrepreneurs.

In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.

NO TECHNOLOGY SKILLS REQUIRED:
Any student interested in startups, launching a business, entrepreneurship, or creative problem solving is encouraged to register. Startup Weekend demands teamwork, creativity, and determination! External experts with business and technical experience will help mentor teams, however, students will be forced to push the limits of their comfort zone and learn new skills.

NO TALK, ALL ACTION!
Startup Weekend demands teamwork, creativity, determination, and focus from all participants! While each team will be assigned an adult coach, every team will be expected to manage itself to optimize time.
