It’s the last call to sign up for Startup Weekend sponsored by Blackstone LaunchPad & Techstars with Syracuse University, University at Buffalo, and Cornell University. The virtual event from October 23 – 25 is designed for students who want to meet other student innovators over a high energy weekend. Participation is limited to 25 per school and there is still space for a few more Syracuse students to join in. More than $5,000 in prizes will be awarded over the weekend. More info is here and you can sign up here.
Over the course of the 54 hour event, participants come up with ideas, form teams and use lean startup methodology to create solutions they pitch to expert judges on Sunday afternoon. Designed for any student interested in entrepreneurship, LaunchPad Startup Weekends challenge participants to think creatively and communicate effectively. Teams come together to create working startups during the event and collaborate with like-minded entrepreneurs from other campuses.
The weekend is centered around action, innovation, education – and fun. Ventures that go on to become real companies are often created at Startup Weekends. It’s not too late to sign up on the Eventbrite page here.
