Beyond the Pitch
Startup Weekend Athens, OH
Have the next great idea?
Want to collaborate with artists, engineers, or entrepreneurs?
Come to Startup Weekend Athens!
The event is open to all who have an entrepreneurial passion. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers.
Don’t have an idea but just want to learn how to start a business? No problem! Your skills will benefit another’s idea.
Have an idea but not sure what to do with it? No problem! Your idea will spark thought and perhaps generate action.
Following the opening pitches, teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 49-hour frenzy of business creation.
The weekend culminates with presentations in front of a judging panel of thought leaders with an opportunity for critical feedback. Whether entrepreneurs launch companies, find a co-founder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their realm, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to fervently act on their ideas.
