During GEW

Lehigh Valley Startup Weekend will be back November 15-17, 2013. Startup Weekends are 54-hour No Talk, All Action events where you become an entrepreneur!

One of the nation’s premier entrepreneurship events, Startup Weekends draw entrepreneurs, inventors, product developers, business owners, and others to pitch their ideas 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, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

The top three winning teams will receive a total of three seats in Lehigh’s VentureSeries executive education/MBA program (total of nine seats). Lehigh students can use a special promotional code to purchase Startup Weekend tickets at $35 (regular price is $49); contact Catherine Headman,, for the promotional code. Some free tickets are also available through the Baker Institute. Sunday’s final presentations are open to the public.

Lehigh University’s Baker Institute for  Entrepreneurship, Creativity and Innovation is a co-sponsor of the event.
