Join us at Startup Weekend Columbus: Smart City Edition!

Startup Weekend Columbus: Smart City Edition is coming to Columbus for the first time! All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it's a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, UX/design, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for feedback and to win prizes.

This event will be held May 13-15 at Rev1 Ventures. Find more info or reserve your ticket here:
