About Startup Boost Weekend

Startup Boost Weekend is a 48 hour (Saturday - Sunday) event during which students with different skillsets - software developers, business students, graphic designers, startup enthusiasts and more - come together to team up, and by the end of the event pitch ideas for new startup companies. This free three-day event encourages a fun and engaging environment for changemaker students of all backgrounds. It’s for students who use their unique perspective, passion knowledge, and abilities to bring about change in their communities through entrepreneurship. Startup Boost Weekend creates a platform for students to gain insight and relevant, real-time experience for building and growing a startup while expanding their networks, portfolios, and resumes.
