Upcoming Event – Startup Weekend Las Vegas 2018

August 20, 2018
SWLV2017 Recap Startup Weekend Las Vegas 2017 helped turn bright ideas into marketable business plans. From polishing each team’s pitch to winning over potential investors, each group was able to learn the skills of entrepreneurship hands-on with teams of other innovators. The team that took home 1st place in 2017 was SureStep, a web-based platform for court administrators and an app for users in drug treatment programs. Following them in second and third place was Developers.Vegas, and Trigger Tracker. SWLV 2018 Startup Weekend Las Vegas will be coming back to Rob Roy’s Innevation Center Friday, November 16th. The event will run through the entire weekend and wraps up on Sunday, November 18 with each team’s final pitch to an awesome team of judges comprised of local business leaders and industry experts. Attendees will learn new skills and perhaps even meet the other founding members of their future companies.  This is your chance to put your entrepreneurial skills to the test. Come with a startup idea you’ve been thinking about for a while, or join a team with an idea you believe in. Either way, you’re going to get a lot out of it. The 3 Phases of Startup Weekend Part 1: Team Formation After dinner and a little networking on Friday night, everyone gets a chance to pitch their ideas to the group. The format is open mic style and anyone with an idea is encouraged to pitch. From there, you and everyone else will vote for your favorite ideas. The ideas with the most votes become the teams that compete throughout the rest of the weekend. It’s a good idea to arrive early and start getting to know other attendees during dinner on Friday, because those are the people with whom you’ll be forming teams. Strong Startup Weekend teams have the right mix of skills, passions, and personalities. You have a limited amount of time to find your tribe, so use your time wisely. Part 2: Buildout Saturday and most of Sunday are dedicated to building out your idea. “Building” can mean a lot of things. For software products, most people aim for a prototype to demo to the judges. Your team might build a website with an informational video, a physical prototype, or something else cool that you can present on Sunday night. Workshops and mentorship are available throughout the day on Saturday to help you get things moving. You’ll get a chance on Sunday morning to finalize your prototype, and then you should spend the afternoon perfecting your presentation. Part 3: Presentations Sunday evening is the culmination of all your hard work, and also your chance to win some really awesome prizes. Your team presents to a panel of judges (and an audience of your peers) for the opportunity to win. This is the part of the weekend where you demo your prototype, show off your skills, and make an impression. This is your chance to show off all the incredible things you’ve accomplished in just a
