Opportunity to Learn About Startups, Sept 15-17

I'm excited to tell you about a unique opportunity for Computer Science students to participate in. Greater Lafayette Startup Weekend is an experiential learning opportunity for students to learn the basics of creating a startup from the ground up. Normally tickets cost $60, but we have a special promotion for Purdue students: if they use the promo code STUDENT when they sign up, tickets will cost just $30 for the whole weekend.

Startup Weekend is a global initiative powered by Google for Entrepreneurs aimed at encouraging innovation and opportunities in technology and engineering. Details about Greater Lafayette Startup Weekend can be found here: #GLSW2017

Teams form on Friday night and receive guidance from mentors throughout the weekend as they create business canvasses, do client discovery and validation, and create a final pitch presentation. The winning teams from startup weekend receive prizes that help them continue to grow their innovative product or service, and many of the winning teams from years past are still growing!
