Techstars Startup Weekend Beaufort
April 29, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - May 1, 2022 @ 8:00 pm EDT$10 – $30
The Beaufort Digital Corridor is hosting the City of Beaufort’s first Startup Weekend during the last weekend in April. Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where anyone –- developers, designers, business developers, marketers, teachers, students, and everyone in between –- can come together to pitch an idea and launch a business, all in one weekend. It is a great opportunity to test startup ideas, meet potential co-founders, build the entrepreneurial community in Beaufort, and even launch your next startup! Feel free to check out this video for more information.
Over the course of the weekend, participants will brainstorm startup ideas, form teams, and compete to win prizes that may help them launch the startups they create during the weekend. Local judges include Dick Stewart, Beaufort’s very own serial entrepreneur and investor, and Jason Loia, a seasoned tech executive with 20 years of start-up experience in the Silicon Valley.
This event has gained the attention of global partners such as Google for Startups and GoDaddy, in addition to local sponsors including Beaufort County Economic Development Corporation in partnership with the Beaufort Digital Corridor, Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce, City of Beaufort, CytoSPAR, Design Doc, New South Shirts, Upcycle Holdings, Charleston Digital Corridor, and South Coast Cyber Center.
This inaugural event will take place on April 29 – May 1 in the new South Coast Cyber Center, 1100 Boundary St., Beaufort. Tickets are available for purchase starting at $10 for observers and $30 for participants. Students may participate at $20. https://event.techstars.com/event/goX1RLOnho
