Startup Weekend is a 54-hour weekend event, during which groups of developers, engineers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more pitch ideas for new startup companies, form teams around those ideas, and work to develop a working prototype, demo, or presentation by Sunday evening.

The $50 fee includes all food as well as coffee throughout the event and a special SW UNR t-shirt. Mentors, entrepreneurs and advisors from the community will be on hand to network with and learn from.

The best way to see if being an entrepreneur is a good move for you without all the expensive and demoralizing failure! Questions? Contact us at renouni@startupweekend.org or visit
