RENO — Reno will offer local entrepreneurs an opportunity to start a business in 54 hours in a room of designers, developers and enthusiasts during the inaugural Startup Weekend Reno Feb. 22-24.

During the concept-to-launch crunch weekend, local CEO’s, founders and startup veterans will be on hand to provide insight and expertise on the fast-paced world of technology startups in order to motivate and educate Startup Weekend Reno participators.

On Friday, registered attendees will take to an open mic and begin pitching ideas to the group in 60 seconds or less. Ideas are typically web and mobile applications, and once pitched are voted on to create teams for top ideas.

The weekend is spent making the ideas come to life, and a plethora of resources and advice from regional entrepreneurs is offered to participants. Meals and coffee are included in the ticket price. The deadline to complete is Sunday evening, when the results are presented and prizes such as office space, marketing support and hosting are awarded.

Startup Weekend Reno will take place inside the Southside School, 190 East Liberty St., starting at 6:30 pm on Friday. For more information on Startup Weekend Reno, visit
