HSU Startup Weekend

Our Humboldt Startup Weekend begins Friday, March 3 and ends Sunday, March 5. 

Very briefly, the participants who attend have 60 seconds to make a pitch (optional), the pitches are whittled down to the top ideas, and then teams form around the ideas to come out with several developed companies or projects. Finally, the weekend culminates with demonstrations in front of an audience of judges.

To learn more, visit Startup Weekend.

Our event will be very community focused and provide a place for budding entrepreneurs to find co-founders, mentors and momentum for their ideas or just apply their classroom learning.  For $50 for the student registration fee, you will get 7 meals paid for and a free t-shirt, not to mention the amazing resume building and opportunity to widen your network.

If money is a barrier for you, most of our Business Faculty have been extremely generous and offered to sponsor one student each (pay the $50.00 registration).  If the registration fee is the only thing deterring you from signing up, email nancy.vizenor@humboldt.edu saying why you’d like to participate and that the registration fee is a barrier by Friday, February 24th.
