Surprise! Saturday Seminars!


Since it’s Saturday, we’re bringing you an exciting update about NEXT Saturday at Charlotte Startup Weekend 6! We’re doing something brand new this year, and we couldn’t be more excited about it! Can you imagine that some people only buy a Charlotte Startup Weekend ticket to pitch their idea, and if it’s not picked they…LEAVE?!? We think this is a bad idea! If you’re one of “those people” we want you to stay at #CSW6 and continue to build community and network. So this year we’re offering seminars and workshops on Saturday (1/25) that will get you up to speed on some of the tried and true startup how-to’s, from wordpress websites to how to best raise capital. Our presenters are community members (and our guest speaker for the weekend) who are knowledgeable about startups in general, as well as their specific topics. Each will run about 45 minutes with 15 minutes of Q&A. Sessions are located in the Garage at Packard Place (1st floor).

Here’s the schedule:
