Do you have an idea for a product or service? Could it be turned into a minimum viable product with the potential to be scaled up?
Entrepreneurs, innovators, designers, programmers, and business professionals are invited to register for the third annual Startup Weekend Las Cruces event scheduled for November 13-15th at Arrowhead Park, 4605 Research Park Circle, in Las Cruces. On Friday night participants are encouraged to pitch an idea for a startup. Teams are organized around those startup ideas that receive the most votes. Each team then has 54 hours to build a business demo that will be presented before a panel of judges on Sunday afternoon.
“Action—not talk” is the idea that informs the process. Participants gain insight into product design through a hands-on, experiential, team-based learning model. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are sharpened as teams collaborate to develop a minimum viable product. They conduct customer validation interviews and iterate, as necessary, as their design is tested with users. Zetdi Sloan, Director of the Arrowhead Technology Incubator, stated that, from a participant’s perspective, “you’re gaining exposure to the accelerated lean startup process. You’re getting to present in front of highly influential leaders who could affect your startup.” Benefits for participants include meal coverage, access to investors and business leaders, state and national press, business startup essentials, such as .co addresses, and other professional services prizes.
If you register before October 30th, you’ll be eligible for an “Early Bird” ticket for $65. After that date, regular tickets are $75. Student tickets are $25.
