Startup Weekend Grand Rapids


  • Start Garden 40 Pearl St NW #200 Grand Rapids, MI 49503 USA

Grand Rapids Startup Weekend 2017 is soon upon us. The startup/tech community will descend on Grand Rapids for an entire weekend dedicated to idea implementation. Come build cool $%*# with developers, engineers, and entrepreneurs on a 54-hour sprint to create real companies while surrounded by community mentors, investors and cofounders.

Startup Weekend would not be complete without a solid hacker presence. Join Hacker Fellows as we attend Startup Weekend in true form.

As an event added bonus, participants will have optional access to a wireless gateway connecting sensors with real-time monitoring systems called "Smart City." This exclusive open-access gateway is part of a new Smart City initiative aimed at making Grand Rapids a smarter destination to visit, work, live and play. Using the gateway, data can be collected from citizens and devices at the street level - then processed and analyzed.
