Start-up Weekend

Here is something that might be of interest to students who would like to start their own business. It's an event starting on April 17th, a Friday, and going all the way through to Sunday the 19th(54 hours in total). This event allows any student who has a good idea for a business to come and compete to try and make a business plan and start putting words into actions. There will be mentors at the event as well to help the students along the way. Students work in groups to achieve success. After time is up investors will look at the different business proposals and choose and invest in the idea that they think will be the most successful. The winning group will also be given office space for the entire year in New Bedford to help the company grow. Tickets must be purchased to attend, but are only $20 with code($25 regularly) which includes 7 meals.

Below I attached the Facebook Group and link to the tickets plus more information.

The Code is SWUMD2015
