Startup Weekend Long Island for Veterans

Techstars partners with Patriot Boot Camp November 15-17 for Startup Weekend Long Island to help advance the military community in their mission to become innovators. 

Capped at 40 participants, the event also offers scholarships. 

Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to learn how to take the idea in your head and build it into a viable business. Under the guidance of expert mentors, you'll work to launch your business idea over the course of Techstars' 54-hour entrepreneurship immersion experience. You'll form an all-star team, create a prototype of your idea, validate it, receive feedback, continually iterate, and finally pitch to a panel of judges made up of top VCs and business people - all in one weekend!
