Startup Weekend — Lexington steps into ring for international entrepreneurial battle Nov. 16-18

From Nov. 16-18, 70 like-minded attendees will gather in Lexington for a 54-hour event that gives Lexingtonians a chance to bring their entrepreneurial ideas to life.

Startup Weekend is a global event where select cities around the world host a weekend for like-minded individuals to help their business ideas flourish. Attendees will gather at Awesome Inc to brainstorm business ideas, create a team, and build and test a working prototype for an idea of their own.


After perfecting their pitch, the teams will present their original ideas to a panel of judges in hopes of becoming the champions of the annual event.

“Awesome Inc is excited to host the 11th annual Startup Weekend Lexington because we have witnessed the incredible talent that this community has to offer. This event is going to harness ideas and create startups which will be instrumental towards driving innovation and growth in Lexington, and Kentucky at large,” said Amanda Murray, director of marketing at Awesome Inc.

Developers, designers, and anyone who is interested in dipping their toes into the entrepreneurial pool will have access to well-respected mentors and Awesome Inc, a co-working space that has aided in the growth of Lexington’s startup community since 2009.

Startup Weekend is an ideal crash course for any person interested in the process of creating a successful business.
