Plan, build, and launch a startup with fellow students in 54 hours. Refreshments will be provided; just bring your friends, gear, and ideas.
54 is not modeled after hackathons. Teams will need designers, developers, businesspeople, marketers, and you.
54 builds strong friendships and sustainable businesses that last well after the event is over. Startups are powered aircraft, not projectiles.*
On day one, participants pitch their business ideas in 60 seconds or less. After talking it out, everyone votes on their favorite ideas, and the top ideas form teams.
On day two, the fun starts. Each team races to develop their idea, putting together prototypes, slide decks, and marketing material with the help of our awesome coaches.
At the end of day three, teams gather on stage to present their hard work in front of their peers, mentors, and a panel of judges.
