Startup Weekend Ogden

OGDEN TO WELCOME STARTUP WEEKEND, PREMIER ENTREPRENEUR EVENT

Immersive Three-Day Experience Offers Entrepreneurs Opportunity to Launch New Ventures

Entrepreneurs will gather in Ogden, Sept. 28-30 for Startup Weekend. The 54-hour event will be held at Startup Ogden located in the Weber State Downtown building (2314 Washington Blvd., Ogden, Utah).

Startup Weekend brings together designers, developers, marketers and startup enthusiasts from across the State and beyond to share ideas, form teams and launch business ventures. Participants select ideas with the most promise and make as much progress on the business as possible over the course of three days. In addition, business leaders and mentors are on hand to share insights and experience.

Weber State University will participate with a number of entrepreneurial experts from the Hall Global Entrepreneurship Center and Concept Center.

The Hall Global Entrepreneurship Center, in the John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics, offers a minor in entrepreneurship to any enterprising and interested Weber State student or individual from the community. More than 90 students have enrolled in the minor since its creation in 2013. Entrepreneurship students can qualify for up to $15,000 in seed funding to help launch a new business.

The Concept Center, housed in the College of Engineering Applied Science & Technology, is an innovative engineering research and design think tank that brings skilled students, experienced faculty and local companies together on engineering research, product development and design projects. 

Startup Weekend will begin Sept. 28 at 6:30 p.m. and end at 9 p.m., Sept. 30. The program began in 2007 by Techstars, and since then, Startup Weekend has taken place in more than 150 countries with an excess of 363,000 alumni. Participants take their product or business ideas to the next level and join in a worldwide network of entrepreneurs. To learn more about Techstars, visit techstars.com/startup-weekend/
