Weekly Spotlight

Techstars Startup Weekend Orlando

Techstars Startup Weekend Orlando is gearing up for another weekend event - this year Friday, Nov. 22 to Sunday Nov. 25 at CREDO Conduit coworking space.  Early bird tickets are on sale now here.

I am organizing the event again this year along with Josh Murdock and Rajiv Menon (chairman).  Rob Panepinto, Jennifer Dunham, and Jonathan Taylor will be judging the teams on Sunday evening.   As you may know, SWORL winners won the Global Startup Battle across 150 cities in 2017 and 2018, so we are very hopeful this year as well!

We have three sponsored pre-event parties lined up that I encourage you to attend:

1. Central Florida Tech Alliance at CREDO Conduit, Oct. 4, 6 to 8 pm.  Free tickets here.

2. StarterStudio, Nov. 12, 6 pm to 8:30 pm.

3. Orlando Tech and Beer at Brew Theory, Nov. 21, 5:30 pm to 8 pm.
