Have an idea or a problem but don’t know where to start?
Buffalo startup weekend is for the dreamers, the builders, the adventurous. For those who strive to see their visions go from idea to reality!
During this weekend you will immerse yourself in a community of entrepreneurs, learn from leaders and work with a team to build dreams.
For those bold enough to leap, a new opportunity awaits!
What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You’ll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you’ll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You’ll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
