Why Participate in Startup Weekend?

Okay, so I have to shell out $25… What’s in it for me?

We can guarantee that this will be the best $25 that you have ever spent. From memories of a lifetime to being part of a meaningful team (not to mention, free meals!), Startup Weekend can easily be the most formative experience of your college career. The experience extends well beyond the weekend itself, too. The Hydrodontist team from SWMU 2015 placed second and went on to participate in the Brandery’s mini-accelerator course. The Oros team from 2014 took home the gold and went on to the Brandery’s mini-accelerator course as well, where they raised 320,000 on Kickstarter (to date, Oros has raised nearly $2M).

Who knows what your team can accomplish this year! Now that you know what Startup Weekend can do for you, sign up quick. Spots are filling up as we write this.

#SWMU2016 is right around the corner and we’ve been busy planning! With 48 hours to plan, ideate, and execute a business model, Startup Weekend Miami University is a great place to practice what you already know, or try something new and delve into the world of startup entrepreneurship. The entire event takes place over the course of 3 days and will count for a 1-hour credit for the ESP 102 class. Registration cost is $25 and spaces are limited. This event is open to students of all years and majors. We are looking for students from a variety of backgrounds and skillsets to come together to create something amazing.

Startup Weekend is a great way to learn more about business, develop important skills in leadership and teamwork, and create memories of a lifetime. Sign up now to better your future and do something at Miami that you may never have the chance to do again. We can’t wait to see what you create!
