Startup DU

April 21-23, 2017 at the University of Denver

Create. Iterate. Pitch.

An exciting and intensive weekend where in 54 hours participants will engage in the entire entrepreneurial process. Using the theme of sustainability as a guide, participants will explore, create, and build upon key components of a business. StartUp DU is an opportunity for students and members of the community with assorted backgrounds to come together to make an impact.

Quick Details

I'm still unclear.
It starts with a pitch. Have a business idea related to sustainability? Now's your chance to see it come to fruition. Form a small team and spend the weekend fleshing out your business plan, MVP, and formal pitch deck. On Sunday, teams present to a panel of professionals and win awesome prizes. Meals, drinks, and entertainment will be provided throughout the weekend.
Who can attend?
Members of the community, professionals, and students are invited to participate. Students at the University of Denver have the opportunity to recieve course credit. Students can see the syllabus here
