Students and budding entrepreneurs: Startup Weekend is coming back to UCSB:
“Startup Weekend is a 3 day, immersive learning event where the brightest students (and some non students) in engineering, design, and business come together for the experience of building a startup company. The event takes place all over the world.
For only a $50 student or $75 non-student ticket, we will be offering a shirt, 7 meals, Rockstar to keep participants working all weekend, networking with motivated participants and incredible mentors, access to 3d printers, sponsor swag and goodies (a couple company sponsors will be hiring), a free website .co domain, and the opportunity to jump-start that business you have always been thinking about.
Currently our first place grand prize will get a $1500 patent filing application, one year-long membership at Startup SB, a startup consult/incorporation package from Cardona Law, a chance to present in front of investors at a Tech Coast Angels Meeting, one year-long membership in the UCSB Entrepreneurs Association, and one free haircut for all winners.”
