Just One Week until Someone's Dream Becomes a Reality!

F.A.Q - Зошто не треба да бидете загрижени од тоа дека вашата идеја ќе биде украдена

Despite our average of 300 days of sunshine a year, it was a pretty rainy week here in Breckenridge, but that’s done nothing to douse our spirits and excitement as we approach the one week mark to the inaugural Breckenridge Startup Weekend!

So who’s it going to be?

One lucky entrepreneur will see their next great idea take several leaps forward toward becoming a reality by the end of the weekend.  Just sign up, and you have 60 seconds to pitch your idea to a group of local business executives, entrepreneurs, designers, developers, founders, startups, digital experts, and students.

After a vote, teams organize around the tops ideas and have just 54 hours to research, create, develop, design, analyze, and present their business model to a panel of expert judges and local startup business veterans.  The winner receives three months of free office space and other prizes to help further develop and implement their business plan.

Breckenridge Startup Weekend starts at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15 and runs through 9 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 17 at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge.  For more information or tickets, visit www.breckenridge.startupweekend.org

Turn Your Fresh Ideas into Reality at 9,600 Feet

Fifty-four hours, dozens of people, hundreds of great ideas, and 60 seconds – all for the opportunity to change your life and start something amazing, meaningful, or just downright cool.  On August 15 – 17, Breckenridge joins more than 500 other cities in 100 countries when it hosts its inaugural Startup Weekend.  The very first Startup Weekend was held in Boulder, CO.

Startup Weekend gives anyone the opportunity to pitch an idea in 60 seconds or less to a group of local executives, entrepreneurs, designers, developers, founders, startups, digital experts, and students.  After a vote, teams organize around the top ideas and have just 54 hours to research, create, develop, design, analyze, and present their business model to a panel of expert judges and local startup veterans.

Those whose ideas were not chosen can continue to participate as team members.  The winners will receive three months of free office space and other prizes to help their idea become reality after the event.

Startup Weekend is a great opportunity to network.  Even if you don’t have an idea or don’t want to pitch, the first gathering on Friday night is the perfect time and opportunity to find out more about the event and connect with some of the top business leaders and entrepreneurs in the local community.

Oh, and did we mention there will be food and beverages?  We can’t wait to hear your fresh idea Friday night!

Breckenridge Startup Weekend starts at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15 and runs through 9 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 17 at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge.  For more information or tickets, visit www.breckenridge.startupweekend.org.
