Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event, where attendees pitch ideas, form teams and start companies. The event is very community focused and provides a place for budding entrepreneurs to find co-founders, mentors and momentum for their ideas.

The participants that attend have 60 seconds to make a pitch (optional), the pitches are whittled down to the top ideas, and then teams form around the ideas to come out with several developed companies or projects.

Finally, the weekend culminates with demonstrations in front of an audience of judges and potential investors, with prizes going to the winning team or teams. Jonathan David Lewis, the author of “Brand vs. Wild: Building Resilient Brands for Harsh Business Environments,” will be the featured speaker on Friday, June 2.
