Startup Weekend Madison 2019
April 26, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - April 28, 2019 @ 8:30 pm
Learn how to start your own business, all in one weekend!
Every spring, Startup Weekend Madison descends on University Research Park for 54 straight hours. Learn what it takes to get an idea off the ground from serial entrepreneurs in a fun, off-kilter race against the clock!
Attendees will have the chance to pitch a product or service idea Friday night (pitching is NOT required). Teams will organically form around the most creative and strongest pitches, and then folks will rush to get a working vision crafted in just a few days for final presentations Sunday night. The team with the best presentation wins!
Milwaukee’s Mobcraft formed at a past Startup Weekend Madison (SWM), and Madison’s Doyenne and Open Homes were also influenced by SWM events. Designers, accountants, ironworkers, entrepreneurs, gardeners, tech folks, students, you name it – everyone has something to offer!
