Techstars is partnering with Project X-ITE to bring you Starup Weekend Denver. Project X-ITE is a cross-disciplinary community at the University of Denver that supports the next generation of entrepreneurial thinkers through collaborative events, experiential programming, and strategic global partnerships. The weekend will be dedicated to creating businesses that provide solutions to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Learn more about these goals here: http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/ .

The weekend will be open to ALL who would like to participate, but will also be connected to an elective course for DU undergraduate and graduate students who want to gain credit for attending and learn more about what it means to start a company from the ground up. Register for the hybrid course EVM 3704/4704 with Professor Tom Rankin for spring quarter to take advantage of this opportunity!

About Techstars Startup Weekend: 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.
