Techstars Startup Weekend Columbus 15-17 Nov 2019

Join us on November 15-17th for the next edition of Columbus Startup Weekend at the new ROOT insurance office.  What happens at Startup Weekend? In 54 hours you and your team of talented people across all disciplines will turn an idea into a reality. This is where entrepreneurs, designers, coders, hustlers, and innovators in Central Ohio come together to prototype and validate business ideas for viable ventures. It all happens in one weekend, so bring lots of energy!  On the first night, you'll pitch your idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team. Feel like you might not be prepared? Don’t worry, we all begin at the same starting point. This means your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend, you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Everyone is welcome and no previous entrepreneurial experience is necessary. It’s a full weekend of discovery, connection, and fast launch of ideas to businesses. Don’t wait, get your ticket today! With Early bird, pricing tickets are available for 50$ till Oct 6th  Semi-Early Bird Tickets will be available for a limited time! in Oct ($75 instead of the full price of $100) before switching to full price. Looking to watch and not participate for the whole weekend? Pick up a Demo Day ticket to watch the final pitches on Sunday evening. This applies to Sunday only. What's included: A weekend-long event to build and launch a business concept with a collaborative team Space to work for the weekend at
