How the Weekend Works
Get your pitch ready...
Show up, register, we will play a fun ice breaker game and you get a yummy dinner. Then you get 60 seconds or less to pitch your idea for a startup. Everyone votes, teams form & magic happens!
...Work with your team...
You and your team will work together to make a Minimal Viable Product (MVP). Don't worry about the acronym - you will have access to mentors and coaches all weekend long.
.... and present your MVP!
What started out as a nifty 60-second pitch is going to be your 5 minute presentation to a panel of judges. Show them why your Startup is the best. The 5 minute presentation is followed by 5 additional minutes of Q&A.
And then the winner is announced!
The judges provide feedback to all the teams, and then the team that wins Startup 48's Grand Prize Package.
