August 24, 2012 | By | No Comments">No Comments

Ever had an absolutely awesome idea for an invention that could change your community, or even the world?

Or do you go to bed at night dreaming about creating and running your own company one day?

But seriously, even if you’ve ever remotely considered anything like these, then this is for you!

Pay close attention, because one of the most important and exciting events to ever come to Blacksburg is only a few days away…

Introducing Startup Weekend in Blacksburg!

Guaranteed, Startup Weekend in Blacksburg will be one of the most energizing and past-paced events you have ever seen!

On Friday – you pitch your idea for this sweet, new invention and create a team to start collaborating
On Saturday – your team has a plan and starts working right away on your idea
On Sunday – your project is completed and you present the final result to the judges!

Forget all the resume-building and networking opportunities at your fingertips for a sec – your project could go on to actually be implemented for the rest of us to use!

They have tons of goodies

I’m talking about what everyone wishes they had more of:
– Free food
– Prizes
– T-shirts and more!

Sponsors like Microsoft, Amazon, Lujure, Rackspace, and Google
