Startup Weekend – Biloxi

.StartUp Weekend




So, you’ve heard of Startup Weekend, but what’s it all about?

Startup Weekend is no ordinary event. It is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures; An event where like-minded entrepreneurs gather for a weekend of company creation. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011. 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 after 54 hours, you take an initial idea from the Friday night pitches through to a mind spinning start-up company, on Sunday night.  then The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Don’t think it’s just developers. It’s marketing maestros, design gurus, business development wizards, legal geniuses and the specialist of startups – the jack of all trades coming together as one, creating a harmony that can only be envied by the corporate world.

OKAY – so that may be slight sales mode, but it truly is all about bringing together the knowledge of the local entrepreneur scene, and helping those in need to find their feet in the world of startups.
