Greater Lafayette Startup Weekend - Powered by Google

Startup Weekend is a global event that creates an environment and community to turn ideas into startups over the course of a weekend, and it’s returning to Greater Lafayette from September 9 - 11, 2016 at MatchBOX Coworking Studio (check out more info on the website).

The weekend will begin with participants forming teams around ideas that they’ll pitch on Friday night. By Sunday, they’ll have the beginnings of a startup and the chance to win prizes to accelerate their idea to market. Along the way, they’ll have access to help and guidance from volunteer mentors. The mentors and participants represent a wide variety of sectors and backgrounds, and we need developers, designers, people interested in business and startups, marketers, and more to participate to make the event a success.

Tickets are normally $40/person and include meals for the weekend, tee shirts, access to local resources, and more, but with the code "STUDENT" we're giving students 50% off tickets, making it only $20/person.

If you have any questions, please email!
