Startup Weekend is back! If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be an entrepreneur, then you’ll want to attend this weekend’s event. You’ll witness, idea building, late-night coding and design sessions, and bootstrapping a new business in just 54 hours.

Participants are divided into teams and are given two-and-a-half days to get a startup off the ground. Community mentors are available throughout the weekend for advice, and a panel of judges will select the best ideas to be recognized after final presentations on Sunday.

Several local startup businesses have continued to grow and thrive following their Startup Weekend inception, including Acclaimd and BarterQue.

Startup Weekend takes place Nov. 9-11 at The Ohio State University’s Office of Technology Commercialization¬†at the South Campus Gateway.
