Once again, VentureSpur will be supporting the University of Oklahoma’s Startup Weekend: The organizers have just announced their mentors for the event and our co-founder and Managing Director, Kraettli L. Epperson, will be serving as one of the weekend’s entrepreneurial mentors.
From the Startup Weekend’s national website:
Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical or design backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.
Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.
