Two days, 48 hours, 2,880 minutes, 172,800 seconds. Do you think you have what it takes to create and run a startup business in one weekend? Startup 48 is a weekend-long event from October 14-16 which serves as a great wrap-up to UW-Eau Claire’s Entrepreneur Week, and is open to anyone. This challenge partners a group of like-minded individuals to start with an idea and produce a minimal viable product, and a business pitch, by the end of the 48 hours.

Former competitor Justin Vajko explains Startup 48 is “The most fun you can legally have in 48 hours!”

This weekend is all about living like an entrepreneur. From product development, team management, marketing and everything else you don’t expect. Startup 48 is an opportunity to network and gain professional experience through teamwork.
