Northwest Arkansas Startup Weekend is set for April 17–19, at Centerspace, 1 E. Center St., Suite 270, in downtown Fayetteville.
“A sort of hackathon for entrepreneurs,” as it’s called on the event website, Startup Weekend gives aspiring entrepreneurs an opportunity to test the feasibility of their business ideas while connecting with local software developers, designers and marketers, as well as potential partners, mentors and investors.
Individuals can pitch their business concepts on the first evening, and teams will be formed around the top chosen ideas, as voted on by attendees.
Teams will work throughout the weekend to launch their startups and will present to an audience that includes event judges and potential investors, before the judges announce awards.
