Join us as we celebrate our community's 7th Techstar Startup Weekend!
Techstars Startup Weekend Fargo 2019: Growth, follows your typical 54-hour group effort to pitch a startup, solve problems, and present your idea at the end of the weekend. The twist? This year, we ask that you focus in with a specific theme in mind: Growth. Pitches will ideally be focused on a certain aspect of what growth means. This can be many things- it can be developing and exploring new avenues, or building on something that already exists or whatever else your team deems as "growth".

About Techstars Startup Weekend: Techstars Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide experiential education & meaningful connections for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night presentations. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.
Do not feel like you need to come with a pitch in mind. Some do and some don't. And many end up pitching an idea that just pops into their head Friday night! Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. How it works is that many pitches will be shared and participants will vote on their favorites. Based on the voting, the top ideas will be narrowed down (a good guess would be 7-10) and teams will be developed to work on those ideas. Email us at email@example.com if you have questions.
Refund Policy: No refunds will be granted within 7 days of the event if food and drink have already been ordered. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
