Startup DU

April 21-23, 2017 at the University of Denver

Create. Iterate. Pitch.

StartUp DU is a weekend-long, entrepreneurial boot camp centered around sustainability.  It is open to students and community members alike, but students can also get class credit for participating.  We are encouraging students with a business idea related to sustainability to pitch their idea in front of other students and Colorado community members in order to form teams.  Teams will then spend the weekend collaborating with each other and working with mentors to develop their business idea.  At the end of the weekend, teams will pitch to a panel of esteemed judges to compete for prizes.

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
For more inquiries about credit, please contact Tom Rankin at Tom.Rankin@du.edu
