Startup Weekend Black Hills - Spearfish

Mar 24, 2017 - Mar 26, 2017

54-hour event designed to provide superior education and mentoring for designers, developers and entrepreneurs. 

Registration is $80 for the three-day event; student fees are $50. The fee includes all meals throughout the weekend. Those that want to watch the business pitches and network can buy a $25 ticket, which provides entrance to the Friday night and Sunday afternoon sessions. 

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. One-on-one coaching and mentoring will be provided by seasoned entrepreneurs, investors and marketers in the community. 

Startup Weekend Black Hills is organized through TechStars, a mentorship-driven startup accelerator, and a community team spearheaded by Haught and Jeffrey Wehrung of Black Hills State University. Other partners include Spearfish Economic Development Corporation & Salazar and Associates.
