Despite our average of 300 days of sunshine a year, it was a pretty rainy week here in Breckenridge, but that’s done nothing to douse our spirits and excitement as we approach the one week mark to the inaugural Breckenridge Startup Weekend!
So who’s it going to be?
One lucky entrepreneur will see their next great idea take several leaps forward toward becoming a reality by the end of the weekend. Just sign up, and you have 60 seconds to pitch your idea to a group of local business executives, entrepreneurs, designers, developers, founders, startups, digital experts, and students.
After a vote, teams organize around the tops ideas and have just 54 hours to research, create, develop, design, analyze, and present their business model to a panel of expert judges and local startup business veterans. The winner receives three months of free office space and other prizes to help further develop and implement their business plan.
Breckenridge Startup Weekend starts at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15 and runs through 9 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 17 at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge. For more information or tickets, visit www.breckenridge.startupweekend.org
