Entrepreneurship Enthusiasts Needed for Regional Startup Weekend Event
HERMITAGE, PA—February 1, 2018— Community members with a love for entrepreneurship will gather in Hermitage from March 2-4 for the Shenango Valley region’s second ever Startup Weekend. The 54-hour event will be held at the eCenter@Lindenpointe located at 3580 Innovation Way, Hermitage, PA 16148. The weekend’s events will begin on March 2 at 5:30 pm and end after 7:00 pm on March 4.
The region’s first Startup Weekend, held in November of 2016, included over 60 participants and nine business pitches. The 2016 weekend’s facilitator Kit Mueller—a well-known advocate for the creation of new businesses and technology in Southwestern Pennsylvania and co-organizer of Pittsburgh’s first Startup Weekend—will be returning again to lead this year’s event.
Startup Weekend will bring together designers, developers, marketers, students, and startup enthusiasts from throughout the region and beyond to share ideas and launch business ventures. Participants will select ideas with the most promise, form teams, and make as much progress on the business as possible over the course of three days. In addition, business leaders, mentors, and other movers and shakers from the region will be on hand to share insights and experience.
The weekend also includes meals, t-shirts, and cool prizes for the winning teams. Anyone with a passion for entrepreneurship or business is encouraged to participate. Early bird registration costs $50 for attendees, $25 for students, and has been extended to February 15 due to popular demand.
