Startup Weekend powered by Google

Startup Weekend

Cal State L.A. is pleased to present Startup Weekend powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, a 54-hour event where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups!  

Sponsored by the College of Arts and Letters and the Department of Communication Studies this non-profit is open to students, faculty, staff, and the greater Los Angeles community.

A brief schedule of the event:

June 27  5:00 PM - 8:30 PM (Los Angeles Room in the Student Union)
June 28  9:00 AM - 10:00 PM (Choral Room MUS 149)
June 29  9:00 AM - 9:00 PM (Choral Room MUS 149)

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, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, participants leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.

Registration is limited.  Price: $99 General and $20 Student
Registration includes all meals and beverages as well as access to resources to launch your startup!
