Entrepreneurship—take it for a spin


Calling all Sacramento entrepreneurs! Startup Weekend is returning to Sacramento November 11 – 13. Startup Weekend Sacramento is your opportunity to test drive entrepreneurship risk-free. No need to worry about quitting your job or emptying your 401K. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to launch a business from just an idea, Startup Weekend is your chance to take the experience for a ride and see how it feels.

Do you have an idea you’d like to build out? Do you want to meet motivated, talented hustlers like yourself? Startup Weekend is the perfect circumstance to build a company—or at least as much as you can build in 54 hours!

Here are a few things you can ‘test drive’ during Startup Weekend:
1. The desire to become an entrepreneur—is it more than just a dream?
2. The idea—can you build it into a viable business?
3. The startup lifestyle—can you handle a high growth, low structured environment?

Nobody leaves a Startup Weekend empty handed, even if you don’t win. You’ll come away with new skills, new connections to motivated people like yourself, and perhaps, a startup business!

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: pitch your startup idea and receive feedback from your peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs of various skill sets who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.
