The Laramie Chamber Business Alliance says that registration is now open for the 2019 Techstars StartUp Weekend Laramie. It will be held October 4 through 6t at the University of Wyoming’s College of Business.

The 2019 StartUp Weekend Laramie is focused on helping current businesses create new business offerings. It is where companies can send talented employees to gain fresh ideas and valuable business skills. It is also open to entrepreneurs, students, and intrapreneurs.

StartUp Weekend Laramie starts with participants pitching their business ideas. Teams are formed around the ideas that are selected. Then for the rest of the weekend, they work together on developing a prototype and final presentation. Prizes are awarded to the top teams.

During the event, participants have access to top mentors and industry experts to help them further develop their ideas into a final product.

The idea that won at the 2018 StartUp Weekend Laramie was an allergy-free vending machine, pitched by Minden Fox, a Marketing & Entrepreneurship professor for the Laramie Community College.


Sponsors for StartUp Weekend Laramie 2019 include the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, the City of Laramie, the University of Wyoming College of Business, Albany County, Albany County Tourism Board, and the Laramie County Community College.
