Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement that unites creative and intelligent minds together for an unforgettable weekend of ideation and new venture creation. This October, Gainesville invites you to become a part of the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs. With over 400 past events in nearly 100 countries around the world, Startup Weekend Gainesville is the perfect place to start your first business venture, or grow the business concept you have already established.
Whether this is your first Startup Weekend, or you are a frequent participant, Startup Weekend Gainesville aims to be an experience like no other. The first evening we invite all guests to pitch their startup idea to their peers and organizers to receive feedback. After opening pitches and critiques, all participants will organically form teams around the evening’s top ideas (as determined by popular vote). Immediately after, you will be thrust into a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation until final pitches. Participants and Attendees of Startup Weekend Gainesville will close out their weekend with presentations in front of local business leaders, and celebrity guest entrepreneurs.
Explore behind the scene of the city’s coolest startup spaces, enjoy exclusive deals, and mingle with the most successful people that are at the forefront of the future of Gainesville. Be sure to register as a participant of Startup Weekend Gainesville to ensure that you have access to enjoy all the events and features happening over the course of the 3 days.
