Make your big business idea a reality at Startup Weekend Detroit

Have you ever had a killer business or app idea? What if you could dedicate a weekend to working with folks who could help make it a reality? Well, that’s what Startup Weekend is all about.

Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate 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 is focus on action, innovation, and education. Whether you’re looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup. Need more of a visual explanation? Watch this short video from our last event in Detroit.

Basically, if you’ve never attended a Startup Weekend event, you’re in for one hell of a ride.

Startup Weekend is returning to Detroit the weekend of Friday, November 15. The event will be hosted at Grand Circus, a training hub for developers, designers and business professionals.

Since 54 hours can be over in a blink of an eye, developers (front-end and back-end) play an incredibly important role during Startup Weekend. They help establish a project’s digital footprint, develop sites for lead capture and customer feedback, and create the overall product. Individuals with knowledge of WordPress are a hot item can help drive a team forward.
