In March, Fargo will host its first Startup Weekend, an event bringing together entrepreneurs, designers, developers and startup enthusiasts to participate in 54 hours of taking innovative business ideas from concept to launch.
Local CEOs, founders, and startup veterans will be on hand to provide expertise and give talks on their experiences in the fast-paced world of technology startups.
Keynote speaker is Phil Soran, serial entrepreneur in the technology field. He was most recently the president and CEO of Compellent Technologies. Dell aquired Compellent for $960 million in February 2011.
Registration is open for anyone interested in what it takes to be an entrepreneur. If you don’t want to participate, join us on Sunday for the pitches and post party. It’s going to be a blast! For more information check out the website at http://fargo.startupweekend.org/
