Durham Kickstart Weekend
Our new website!
In February 2014 Durham hosted its first Kickstart Weekend. Bringing together a collection of enthusiastic entrepreneurs, techies, developers, accomplished business people, mentors, and speakers from across the country for a 36 hour extravaganza.
Following an introduction and light networking over Friday supper anyone was welcome to pitch their business idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams then formed organically around the best ideas as determined by popular vote. Then started the frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminated with presentations in front of investors and entrepreneurial leaders.
Kickstart Weekend is the most effective platform to grow a new business from the ground up over a single weekend. Kickstart weekend is for everyone - you do not have to be a student to attend. It is an excellent opportunity to explore your ideas, meet and network with similar minded people, and get caught up in the startup bug.
