Techstars Startup Weekend Hawaii
Friday, November 4 @ 5:30 pm - Sunday, November 6 @ 2:00 pm HST
Calling all founders, entrepreneurs, creatives, technologists with an idea on how to better our communities in Hawaiʻi.
Transform a rough idea to maturity in just 54 hours! A 3-day weekend for entrepreneurs to pitch an idea (or join an idea that you are passionate about), find like-minded people, grow your network & learn new skills. Weʻll have workshops by experts in their field and mentors to help guide you and speed up progress. On the last day, pitch your startup concept to a panel & the public to get feedback – and maybe give life to your new startup!
