Startup Weekend Anchorage
Startup Weekends is a 54-hour event designed to provide experiential education for creators, executors, and innovators. The weekend events are centered on action, innovation, and education. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through testing, business model development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekend culminates in Sunday night demos to a panel of potential investors and local entrepreneurs. Participants are challenged with building functional startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. 

Who you’ll meet at Startup Weekend
Startup Weekends attendees’ backgrounds are roughly 50% creators (developers, coders, designers, tinkerers, artists) and 50% executors (marketing, finance, law, business strategy) or a combination of both. Roughly 80% of attendees plan on continuing to work on their startup after the weekend. 

What you’ll get out of the event
  • Education: Startup Weekends are all about learning by doing, whether you’re learning a new skill or a new way of thinking. Don’t just listen to theory, build your own strategy and test it as you go.
  • Build Your Network: Startup Weekend works hard to recruit high quality, driven entrepreneurs- like you!
  • Learn New Skills: With a whole weekend dedicated to letting your creative juices flow, Startup Weekends are perfect opportunities to work on a new platform, learn a new programming language, or give marketing a try. With nothing to lose, there’s no reason not to step outside your comfort zone.
  • Learn How to Launch a Business (and Actually Do It!): Startup Weekend is the epitome of Lean Startup Methodology.
  • Mentorship: Local tech and startup leaders participate in Startup Weekends and give feedback to participants. Interact with the movers and shakers in your community.
  • Food: You will be well fed during the weekend.
