Launch your idea in 54 hours
Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with?
Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
Startup Weekend Mobile is a 54 hour competition where you can turn your best ideas into businesses for the chance to win a package of prizes.
The event is April 13th to the 15th, and here is a bit more about what happens throughout the event:
Friday evening, 75 contestants of all ages and walks of life will come together at The Steeple in downtown Mobile to pitch their ideas for a business. After a quick round of voting, 7-10 of these ideas will emerge as the top contenders, and then the contestants break apart and form teams around these final ideas on Friday night. Throughout Saturday and Sunday, the teams receive constant feedback and advice from coaches that are challenging them to validate their idea and to develop a Minimum Viable Product. Finally, the weekend concludes Sunday evening with a high-energy pitch competition that is open to the public (in previous years, we've had over 300 spectators) where the teams pitch their business to a panel of high-quality judges with a package of prizes reserved for the winners.
