Techstars Startup Weekend Rocklin

Placer County's first Startup Weekend begins this Friday

Back Event Feb 23, 2018

Launch a Startup in 54-Hours!

Do you have a new idea you’d like to pursue or a problem you’d like to solve but don’t know where to start or who to start with? 

Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend. Startup Grind Sacramento Chapter Leader Rich Foreman will be one of the coaches this weekend.

Price:  $99 general, $29 student with valid ID.
Startup Grind Grind is proud to be a sponsor of this event! Use promo code “grinder” for 35% off! 

Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:

  • 7 full meals over the course of the weekend
  • A Startup Weekend t-shirt
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
  • One-on-one time with amazing mentors
  • A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
  • All the internet and coffee you can consume.
  • How Does it Work? 

You’ll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. Your idea must be something you have not previously worked on and are willing to let others work on with you. 

The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you’ll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You’ll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
