Lemonly is proud to host South Dakota’s first ever Startup Weekend! We’re excited to be a part of the growing entrepreneur and startup community around not only Sioux Falls, but South Dakota as a whole. We want you to be a part of Startup Weekend on November 15-17.
So what is Startup Weekend?
If you have an idea or want to be a part of a team that helps make an idea happen, Startup Weekend is for you. Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where a group of motivated developers, business managers, marketing geeks, graphic designers, and more come together in one location to build a variety of projects. It’s a fantastic opportunity for people to do a lot more than just network with other startup gurus.
It also helps build the local startup communities, launch new businesses in a single weekend, and allows passionate individuals to test their ideas.
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model:
- Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers.
- Teams organically form around the top ideas that are determined by popular vote.
- The 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation and research begins.
- The weekend ends with each group presenting in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
Take a look.
