This year’s event will be held at the CSUMB University Center beginning at 4:00 pm on Friday, January 25, 2019. Participants will work through the weekend to create their businesses and the public will be able to see the teams present to a panel of judges on Sunday, January 27, 2019, at 5:00 pm.

Techstars Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. View the video below to see how it works. 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 during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.
