Jun 11th: Fast Tracking Your Business in a Startup Accelerator

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/936955819811109/

We are pleased to welcome Allison Clift-Jennings, Adam Kiefer, and Aaron Sturm to discuss their experiences participating in startup accelerator programs.

It’s not easy to get a startup off the ground and highly competitive startup accelerator programs like Techstars and Y-Combinator (whose graduates include Airbnb and Dropbox) have become a way for startups to grow a network, get advice, and receive investment to catalyze their growth.

Join us for a moderated panel discussion with three local founders, Allison Clift-Jennings, CEO of Filament, Adam Kiefer, CEO and Co-founder of Talage, and Aaron Sturm, Head of Business Development for StreamLoan, each of whom has been through two accelerator programs.

Targeting their discussion to both those generally interested in startups and startup founders ready to explore applying to an accelerator, they’ll discuss the pros and cons of startup accelerators, how you get into these highly competitive programs, and what startups can expect to get out of them during these 3-month intensives.

Mountain Minds Monday will be held on Monday, June 11th from 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner located at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. Pizza and salad are available and we use a pay-what-you-can model ($5 minimum). Before and after the panel discussion, there will be time for networking.

The event will also be livestreamed and available online as it happens on YouTube: bit.ly/YouTubeTSM

This month’s event is sponsored by New Leaders, Holland & Hart LLP, The Lift, Molsby & Bordner, LLP, and Mountain Workspace.

What's Startup Weekend?

At Startup Weekend you'll have the opportunity to build a business with a team you meet at the event over the span of the weekend.

That Sounds Like I Have to Know Something About Business....

Nope! Absolutely no experience in business or startups is necessary. Come ready to learn what it takes from fellow participants and our team of mentors, who will guide you through the experience. 

Who Should Sign Up?

Anyone and everyone should sign up for a memorable weekend experience to meet new people, learn something new and create something special.
  • high school students (discounted rate)
  • college students (discounted rate)
  • professionals
  • ski bums

Is it Just for People in Tech?

No, far from it! It's for everyone!

Why Should I Participate?

While you get the opportunity to build a startup at Startup Weekend, which is exciting, challenging and fun, the event is about so much more than that. 

Most attendees are there to connect with other people, learn about what it takes to create a business and be a part of something they've never tried before. This event is for anyone who wants to learn from our incredible mentors, and have fun, whether you want to start a company now, in the future, or never.

You'll be a part of the movement to diversify our local economy to make it easier for us all to live, work, and play in Tahoe.
