Update: Startup Weekend Fredericksburg 2015 has been rescheduled for Nov. 13 – 15, 2015.

Fredericksburg’s fourth Startup Weekend is scheduled September 18 – 20, 2105. Early-bird tickets cost $75, and are on sale through August 18. After that, tickets are $99. Tickets may be purchased on Eventbrite at Startup Weekend Fredericksburg – Veterans Edition

This year’s event is veteran focused. Organizers are encouraging participation by entrepreneurs with a startup idea focused on serving veterans or veterans themselves with a startup idea. Registration is free for veterans, current active duty service members, retired military, prior service members, and/or their dependents. Register as veteran at the Eventbrite link above.

Startup Weekend Fredericksburg is part of the Startup Weekend global network. Each 54-hour event is designed to provide experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas, as determined by popular vote, and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

“Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup,” organizers said.

Startup Weekend Fredericksburg – Veterans Edition will be held at the Fredericksburg campus of Germanna Community College, 10000 Germanna Point Dr., Fredericksburg.
