This is a weekend immersion for PSU students to start companies. Transform initial concepts into compelling business propositions. Work with students and mentors from business, engineering, computer science, graphic design, and other disciplines. Be prepared for an intense weekend of adrenaline, insufficient sleep, and an opportunity to work with people who could become your lifelong business partners. Cash Prizes will be awarded to the top Startups!
