Muncie, Indiana— On October 5th, 6th and 7th, 2018 Techstars will be hosting the first ever Startup Weekend in Muncie, IN.
Do you have an idea you would like to pursue or a problem you would like to solve but don’t know where to start? Then Startup Weekend Muncie is just the event for you. Startup Weekend is a global organization powered by Techstars and Google where participants get together on a Friday evening to pitch and listen to ideas, form teams, and build a business over the course of a weekend. Generally, participants have business, technology, or design experience, but it is not required.
The 54-hour event will take place on the campus of Ball State University in the Applied Technologies Building. The cost to attend is $99 per ticket. (You may view promos of the event on our Facebook page.) Each ticket includes 7 delicious meals throughout the weekend, the opportunity to meet with fantastic mentors and the chance to work with developers, designers and business people from around the community. Everyone is welcome at Startup Weekend Muncie; sign up to participate at http://bitly.com/SWMuncie.
“We don’t tend to think of East Central Indiana as a hotbed for innovation and entrepreneurship, but I think that’s wrong,” says Krystal Geyer, Lead Organizer for Startup Weekend Muncie. “We have tons of talent across the state and want Startup Weekend Muncie to be an opportunity to celebrate and promote our area as a place where innovation thrives.”
