LaunchPad Startup Weekend California 10/23-25/2020
October 23, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - October 25, 2020 @ 8:00 pm
LaunchPad Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide an introductory entrepreneurship educational experience to students.
Designed for students early in their journey with no prior training or existing venture, we believe great startup ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, and diverse teams perform better! LaunchPad Startup Weekends challenge students to think creatively, communicate effectively, and work in a team, all with the end goal of solving a self-identified problem.
Beginning with team brainstorming around problems and solutions, continuing to work on business plan development, and basic prototyping, LaunchPad Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday pitch presentations.
Participants create working startups during the event and have the opportunity 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 centered around action, innovation, and education – and fun!
