Startup Weekend Rochester


  • Collider Coworking 14 4th Street Southwest Rochester, MN, 55902 United States (map)

Think you have an idea for a business, but don't know how to start?  Startup Weekend Rochester will help teach you tips, tools, and tactics designed to evaluate and execute on your idea.  You will learn to create a business model canvas, talk to potential customers, prototype your idea, and learn to pitch your idea to potential investors in just 54 hours!  

Best of all, this weekend is facilitated by Techstars, a worldwide entrepreneurial network aimed at helping entrepreneurs succeed. We will be hosting two guests from Techstars that will help facilitate the weekend.
In addition, Local mentors will also be participating in the weekend as well to help you refine your idea.  

This is one of the best chances you will have all year to get expert help on your business idea.  You will learn how to go from idea to pitch in a short period of time.

Tickets for the event are $35 for students and $75 for everyone else.  This includes 7 full meals, snacks, drinks and hands-on experience working in teams.  There are also opportunities for a limited amount of FREE TICKETS.  Please email Jamie to find out more info on the tickets.

We worked hard with Techstars and our local sponsors to bring Startup Weekend to Rochester because we heard from so many of you that you had a great idea, but didn't know where to start.  This is your chance to get your next business venture off the ground.
