StartUp Weekend Harrisburg


Friday, Sep. 13, 2013
5:00 PM - 11:00 PM


Harrisburg University 326 Market Street Harrisburg, PA 17101 Directions


The concept is simple: You arrive at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology on Friday night and you leave with a business on Sunday evening.Thatís the idea behind Startup Weekend Harrisburg, scheduled for September 13-15, 2013 at Harrisburg University. The Harrisburg event is part of a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekend Harrisburg culminates in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend centers on action, innovation, and education. Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then itís a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. Ticket prices range from $49 for students to $99. There are specials for those who register early, too.
