Gangplank Chandler to host 6th Startup Weekend
Entrepreneurs around the Valley who are looking to create a business will soon have another opportunity to do so in their own backyard.
Coworking space Gangplank Chandler is hosting their 6th Startup Weekend November 20-22. Entrepreneurs and creatives are encouraged to attend and take on the challenge of building a business in a weekend.
“Since Gangplank is a hub for small business, mentorship, and startup, it’s always been a good match for downtown chandler, gangplank, and the business community,” Gangplank Chandler volunteer and community outreach Eileen Kane said. “We’ve had, over the years, increasing female participation.”
The weekend begins on Friday with an open mic pitch session, and continues through Saturday and Sunday with development, practice, and building. On Sunday evening, teams will demo their prototypes and receive feedback from an expert panel.
“Running a startup is both a grand adventure and a supreme challenge,” HiringSolved Founder Shon Burton said. “It’s the Olympics of business –A fiercely competitive sport filled with uber-talented competitors. It’s an honor to compete. Win or lose it’s a life changing experience. Startup Weekend is the qualifying round.”
Chandler-based company HiringSolved is the main sponsor for the event along with BPS Asset Management’s Ben Hall.
