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.
