Startup Weekend Winston-Salem

November 6th, 2015



We had a fantastic Startup Weekend with over 60 participating judges, coaches and startup team members. Our facilitator, Daniel Johnsen, has over 20 past SUWs to his credit and was a fantastic facilitator. Over a 56 hour period, four finalist teams went from idea to business model, including rigorous customer interactions and market research. We had a lot of fun, worked hard and made more progress with the teams than most do in months. Each team has the opportunity to develop further with coaching and free membership at Flywheel.
