Startup Weekend is a great way to experience a startup environment and to see if your billion dollar idea has any legs. This weekend long event starts on Friday night when all the ideas are pitched to the room. Participants then vote with their feet, picking the project he or she wants to work on over the weekend. Late Sunday afternoon, each team pitches to a panel of judges who are experienced in the world of startups, business, and business finance. The top ideas win prizes that will help them move the startup forward. Startup Weekend Billings will be held at Losekamp Hall on Rocky Mountain College starting Friday October 10, 2014 at 6pm and running through Sunday evening (October 12).
