Startup Weekend
May 18-20

Startup Weekend is a 3-day event to help entrepreneurs obtain related education, launch businesses, learn skills, join global communities, save money, and most importantly – build relationships with entrepreneurial peers. The goal of the event is simple: to promote the growth of our own developing startup community by educating, inspiring, and connecting the future entrepreneurs of Gainesville.
