Fort Collins Startup Weekend: Music Innovation is a themed event, where participants are encouraged to develop business and product ideas related to music innovation and have the potential for applications in other industries.
TechStars Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
If your idea doesn’t get picked, don’t sweat it. You’ll get to vote for another idea and work in that team. Whether it’s your idea or someone else’s; the process of the weekend is the same.
Tips for pitching- Give an overview of your idea that covers:
1.The problem you want to solve. Why is it a problem?
2.Potential solution(s) you have in mind
3.Your background and experience.
4. Who you need on the team to make it successful!
No matter your background or skillset, you’ll be able to make meaningful contributions to your team throughout the weekend. If your idea does not relate to either of those, no problem. Pitching any and all ideas are welcome. If you have questions please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
