All It Takes Is A Weekend

Columbia Startup Weekend was created to bring the local entrepreneurial community together so that ideas can be sparked and magic can happen. Ideas are pitched, teams formed around those ideas, and then the weekend is spent diving into making the idea into a business with the support of great minds serving as mentors to the teams. At the end of the weekend, the teams present their businesses to panel of judges and the winners of various categories are named. Whether you enter the weekend to start a company, develop your skillsets, or simply have fun, Techstars Startup Weekend sets the stage for great things to happen.
