Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - May 30, 2017 - Join us for Springfield’s third Startup Weekend on June 9-11th at The eFactory!
Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event that brings together Springfield, MO designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things!
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback! Food, beer, snacks, and swag. What more can you ask for?! Join us today and build your business in a weekend!
