Startup Weekend 2014

September 26- 28, 2014

3rd Annual Startup Weekend at Germanna’s Workforce & Technology Center

Got a great idea? Want to make it the next big thing? Come to Startup Weekend Fredericksburg September 26-28 at Germanna Community College and get your Startup ON!!

This will be our region's second Startup Weekend event. Our first one was off the hook awesome. We had 130 people come to the event with over half of them registered participants. Nine teams formed around the the top pitches voted on by the crowd and ultimately three of those teams went on to form a startup and are still going. Five of the nine teams had at least one former service member on them.

Getting a Startup Weekend event off the ground takes about three months of planning and effort. Volunteering on the organizing team is an awesome way to participate in a Startup Weekend if you want to experience one but aren't thinking about launching your own startup. Contact Christine at christine@fredxchange.org for more info if you are interested in joining the organizing team.

We will be posting more info about the event on our Startup Weekend Fredericksburg site soon, including info on how to sponsor the event so stay posted here for announcements: http://fredericksburg.startupweekend.org/
