According to the Santa Fe Business Incubator: "Santa Fe had the first startup weekend in New Mexico and was the lead on the first Statewide Startup Weekend in the country. And, now you can join the ranks of the Designers, Coders, Creatives, Engineers, Managers, Programmers, Artists, Inventors, Makers, and Doers who have participated in Startup Weekends in Santa Fe over the past 5 years. Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
