Want to build your innovation skills or solve a problem in your community ... in one weekend?
By Katie Duncan | Posted: Monday July 12, 2021
The Chamber is proud to sponsor Startup Weekend tepoti - a weekend designed to challenge you to learn, step outside your comfort zone, innovate, disrupt, and take action.
Anyone is welcome to participate - from parents, to students, to retirees, to current and former business owners, all you need to participate is have bit of curiosity and the desire to give it a go.
The weekend starts on Friday evening when you will have the opportunity to meet with fellow attendees to establish your team. From there you will brainstorm together through first tries, second iterations and third attempts (and possibly return to your first tries), and then create a business plan and a basic prototype. The weekend finishes on Sunday with an evening of demonstrations and presentations.
Startup Weekend is also an opportunity to build, refresh, explore, and learn innovation skills - and you don’t have to come away with a brand new business. The skills you learn can be applied to your existing business or workplace.

- All meals
