Can you really start a company in 54 hours? With Startup Weekend, you can plunge head first into the entrepreneurial world by developing a working prototype, demo, or presentation all within 54 hours of your team’s pitch. Join developers, business managers, students, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists, and like-minded people on Friday, November 6-8, 2015 as they come together to participate in a global event taking place in the Trent Lott Center on the Hattiesburg Campus of The University of Southern Mississippi.

The event is a friendly competition that starts with a pitch of your start-up on Friday, and a presentation of your idea on Sunday. Participants will have a chance to actually develop a business plan that could potentially start up their business during this weekend session. Anyone is invited to register and attend this event. You do not have to have a business idea to participate, however, you will have to join another team to work to promote their idea and help them in the competition.

With over 36% of Startup Weekend start-ups still going strong after 3 months, what’s stopping you and your entrepreneurial-minded self from signing up for the event today? Sign up here!
