Startup Weekend Toledo
October 2nd, 2015

Startup Weekend Toledo 2015 is scheduled for October 2-4 at the LaunchPad Incubator on the campus of the University of Toledo. This will be the third Startup Weekend hosted in the Toledo area – past events occurred in 2012 and 2013.

Some people call it a three day MBA in entrepreneurship. For others, it’s a life changing experience. Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

You know how crazy it is to go from idea to business model to launch a company in one weekend. At Startup Weekend you can join others in the Toledo region who are crazy enough to just do that and more. Your ticket includes all your materials, access to coaches and mentors from many different fields, discussions with speakers who have gone through the startup process, and all meals during the weekend. Advance discount tickets are available until September 1.
