Startup Weekend Iowa City is scheduled to return this year at MERGE from July 15-17.
The event will kick off at 6 pm on Friday, July 15. Attendees will pitch their initial ideas during the first night of the event before all ideas are voted on by the group. The ideas that receive the highest number of votes will then be worked on over the weekend. Teams will work with mentors and develop their ideas all day Saturday and Sunday.
On Sunday, teams will present their final pitches at 4 pm via live stream. The final pitches will be free and open for anyone who would like to attend.
This year the event is partnering with California State University Channel Islands to conduct a study on entrepreneurship. Participants who complete multiple surveys will be randomly selected to receive a $50 digital gift card.
Tickets are now on sale for $25.
