Startup Weekend Evansville

Startup Weekend 7.0 is one for the books! It was held April 6-8, 2018, at the USI Business & Engineering Center.

Startup Weekend is summer camp meets Shark Tank. You have 54 hours to take an idea and turn it into a marketable product or service. We provide the coaches and food - you bring the talent and ideas.

Moving on past our seventh year, Startup Weekend Evansville remains the largest event of its kind in Indiana, open regionally to all students and community.


Teams that made it through very trying and demanding rounds of voting, judging, and persisted through the finals were named this year's winners of SWE 7.0, and were recognized with Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for first, second and third place respectively.

Here are just some of the benefits of participating!

  • Invaluable entrepreneurial education
  • All meals, snacks and drinks provided for the weekend
  • Access to Mentors and Coaches to help develop, refine and pitch your idea
  • All working materials included
  • A chance to meet and collaborate with other creative, smart, motivated, awesome people like you!
  • Free access to the Saturday keynote speaker, Erin Bemis. Erin is a professional speaker for Google’s Get Your Business Online program who spoke on Saturday, April 7.  Erin’s focus was on educating small businesses about how to get found online and training them in Google's tools.
