Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. The weekend events are centered on action, innovation, and education. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through testing, business model development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos to a panel of potential investors and local entrepreneurs. Participants are challenged with building functional startups and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.
Startup Weekend is open to all types of businesses and nonprofit organizations. There is an Early Bird registration cost of $75 general registration and $49 for students until January 6, 2017 which covers the costs of meals and coffee over this three-day weekend. Entrepreneurs, students, and community members, in Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties should apply to the competition at www.startupweekendmb.co.
Startup Weekend Monterey Bay is hosted by the Institute for Innovation and Economic Development (iiED), housed in the College of Business at Cal State Monterey Bay. The iiED hosts events such as Startup Weekend to promote entrepreneurship in the Monterey Bay region and foster the development of a vibrant entrepreneurship ecosystem in the region.
