Spencer Startup Weekend

Spencer, IA (KICD)–Spencer will play host this weekend to an entrepreneurial marathon.

LeAnn Jacobsen with Startup City Spencer tells KICD News that the 1st ever Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered community leaders, and entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.

A dozen people have already signed up for the event. Teams organically form around the top ideas and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
