LA’s startup community is so hot, it is spilling over into Santa Clarita. One weekend, teams of newly formed entrepreneurs and who knows what products or big ideas can happen? Santa Clarita Startup Weekend is a grassroots event, organized by five volunteers who currently live in the Santa Clarita Valley. This is a unique opportunity for software engineers, designers, and business-minded entrepreneurs to team up and build several startups in just 54 hours!

Event: A three-day event that encourages a fun and engaging environment for startup enthusiasts of all backgrounds. Startup Weekend creates a forum for creators and idealists to gain insight and relevant, real-time experience for growing a business while expanding their resumes, portfolios, and networks.

Weekend activities begin with rapid-fire pitches, prototype building, mentor feedback from experts in the field, and it concludes with a Shark Tank-style judging session. Prizes awarded will be designed to add value to the winning startup teams, and of course come with bragging rights!

Participants arrive the evening of Friday, Nov. 13, 2015. Those with a startup in mind pitch their idea (not required), the attendees vote, and teams are formed! Days two and three involve collaboration as teams take their ideas from the paper to a working prototype. The potential for startup growth in Santa Clarita abounds, and this event is the perfect opportunity to learn about the resources that exist right here in the Santa Clarita Valley.
