FHSU to host 3rd Startup Weekend to encourage business entrepreneurs

Fort Hays State University will host its third Kansas Startup weekend from Friday to Sunday, Nov. 14 to Nov. 16. Led by FHSU's College of Business and Entrepreneurship, Startup Weekend is an event designed for entrepreneurs to meet, share ideas and launch new business plans.

The three-day event kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday in McCartney Hall on the FHSU campus.

"Kansas Startup is a great opportunity for anyone interested in starting a business, non-profit or cause-related organization to share their idea with others and create a viable organization over a weekend," said Henry Schwaller IV, instructor of management and marketing.

"Participants meet each other, pitch ideas and then form teams around the best ideas," said Schwaller. "The teams work through Sunday on their concept and then present it to a panel of distinguished judges on Sunday evening."

This event is open to anyone with a great idea and the desire to make that idea a reality. Registration is available online at www.kansasstartup.com, or by calling Schwaller at 785-628-5873.
