TWC News – What to Expect from Triad Startup Weekend
A Winston-Salem co-working space is looking for developers, designers, entrepreneurs and students.
Flywheel is hosting Triad Startup Weekend — a 54-hour event combining brainstorming and business plan development.
Teams will collaborate, present their plan and get feedback.
Organizers say the event has been successful in the past — with two companies growing out of one event alone.
They say the overall goal is to cultivate a community of entrepreneurs and surround them with robust activities so they can create companies and get them off the ground in the Innovation Quarter.
“We’re one of the primary economic development initiatives here in Winston-Salem, in terms of the creation of new companies that can grow and scale organically,” said Peter Marsh, Flywheel Co-founder. “It’s a matter of creating a vortex of activities that attract entrepreneurs and exposes them to experienced and seasoned entrepreneurs.”
