This Startup Weekend event will be held at hotDesks, a coworking space, in Salisbury, MD. We can accommodate 50-75 attendees. Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of builders, creators, developers, designers, and idea generators who come together for a weekend of experiential learning and growth. The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, WA but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 200 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and build companies. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. Whether attendees found companies, find a cofounder, make amazing connections, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. Register now for the best weekend of your life!
