Day 1: Meet, Pitch & Team Up

Make new friends over Tea & Snacks. Meet the people you’ll be working with.
- 60 Seconds to Pitch
Remember the idea you submitted during application? You’ve got 1 minute to pitch in front of everyone.
- Choose A Project
Heard an idea that you thought could work well with yours (it’s happened before)? – Move over to the person you’ll want to work with over the weekend.
- Meet The Team
Whether it’s your idea or someone else’s, you’ll create a cross-functional team to work with over the weekend.
Day 2: Learn & Work
- Learn from those who are where you’d like to be
We’ll have speakers and panels taking you through the concepts to prepare you for the road ahead. Local mentors will be available throughout the event to coach you through any challenges you may face.
- Get To Work
We’ll give you the resources & support to get going, FAST. It’ll then be up to you to handle the rest – everything from finding customers to building your product. We’ll be here to help when you need it.
Day 3: Present & Choose
- Present in Front of Panel Judges
The culmination of the weekend. You’ll have 5 minutes to present the product or service you built to the crowd and a panel of experts.
