Startup Weekend NCW RESCHEDULED!


North Central Washington StartUp Weekend – Rescheduled!

After being smoked out by the fires in Wenatchee last Fall, North Central Washington StartUp Weekend has been rescheduled for June 7, 8, and 9!

Now’s your chance to crank up that business you’ve been dreaming about.

StartUp Weekend, one in a series of entrepreneurial workshops held around the world, will be hosted at the Confluence Technology Center in Wenatchee June 7-9 by the North Central Washington Economic Development District and GWATA, the NCW Technology Alliance.

The two-day event features lectures, skills assessments and networking opportunities. At its center is a workshop session in which participants pitch a startup idea and receive feedback from peers and guidance from business coaches.

Through the weekend, teams form around the top ideas, determined by popular vote, followed by sessions on creating a business model, design and marketing. The weekend ends with presentations in front of local business leaders and more critical feedback on each project.

Weekend events begin at 6:30 p.m. June 7 with registration and dinner, runs 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. June 8 and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. June 9. All sessions will be held at the Confluence Technology Center. Cost is $99.
