The sixth installment of Startup Weekend kicks off Friday at Greater Nevada Field, formerly the Aces Ballpark, in downtown Reno. Our reporter Julia Ritchey has more.
Aspiring entrepreneurs will brainstorm their best ideas over the weekend in a competition aimed at fostering startup culture.
Attendees are given 54 hours to come up with an idea, form a team and work on a website and marketing plan before pitching to a panel of judges.
Bryan McArdle of the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada is one of the organizers.
