Featured Events & Entertainment in Winston-Salem, NC and the Triad  


Triad Start Up Weekend. 54 Hours. No Talk. All Action. Friday, November 5th

Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.

Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.  All teams listen to talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder to partner with, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
