Entrepreneurs offered access to success | Business
(WMC-TV) – An event later this month will help some lucky people transform their ideas for businesses into reality.
Startup Weekend Memphis will give budding entrepreneurs access to some of the area’s greatest business minds and a lucky few will win $20,000 worth of cash and services.
Tickets range from $89 to $99, but early bird discounts bring the ticket price down to $55 and $65.
Here’s what you can expect at the weekend long event, according to organizers:
Teams form organically around original and inventive pitches, and work together through business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation in the span of one weekend. The event concludes with presentations in front of successful local entrepreneurial leaders for a chance to receive constructive feedback on each proposed venture.
The event will be held at Lab Four, 6154 Macon Rd.
