The U of A Office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation is partnering with Startup Junkie to offer mentorship in outdoor recreation, Web 3.0 and general business at TechStars Startup Weekend Fayetteville .

An exciting and immersive foray into the world of startups, TechStars Startup Weekend is 54 hours of thinking, working and building like a startup.

The event will be held Aug. 26-28 at the Pryor Center in downtown Fayetteville.

Over an action-packed three days, meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders and sponsors who will demonstrate how to get more done faster — and, maybe even start that business.

Groups of participants form teams around ideas on Friday evening and work during the weekend with mentors to bring that idea to execution as they develop a working prototype, demo and a pitch presentation by Sunday evening.

After pitching the final product to a panel of expert judges, a grand prize of $5,000 will be awarded to the winners of each focus area. The money will be dedicated to initial startup costs.
