The 8th Edition of #SWLV Is Here!

Come start a company, learn something new, test your developer skills, maybe meet your future co-founder – either way you’ll have the most fun you’ve ever had! Entrants can sign up as developers, designers and non-technical professionals.

Las Vegas Startup Weekend (SWLV) follows a basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch a startup idea and receive feedback from peers. Teams organically form around top ideas, as determined by popular vote. Each team has 54 hours to create a business model, code, design, and determine market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations of top ideas to entrepreneurial leaders and venture capitalists.

One of the Startup Weekend event coaches is Dr. Janet Runge, enrichment coordinator, Entrepreneurial Programs at UNLV.
