The third Startup Weekend Reno has just been announced for the weekend of November 21 at the Reno Aces Ballpark. Startup Weekends are 54-hour long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if their startup ideas are viable, and where others can experience the startup process. Startup Weekend attendees have technical or design backgrounds while others have a variety of business backgrounds.
Reno’s Startup Weekend kick-offs on Friday, November 21 with “open mic” pitches where attendees present their best ideas and inspire other attendees to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday, the teams focus on validating their ideas and building a viable product or prototype. The weekend wraps up on Sunday evening when the teams demonstrate their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of mentors, experts and judges.
Why should you participate? Startup Weekends are a great way to build your network, learn a new skill, get face time with thought leaders, and get all the coffee you can drink! If you’re interested, Startup Weekend Reno is looking for programmers, developers, business people, marketers and more, as well as mentors and judges.
