Catch up on StartupNU

StartupNU has arrived

All successful startups begin with the same recipe: a good idea, a great pitch, a hardworking team, a business plan.  Some take years to get off the ground, but we gave students you two days. That's right—just 48 hours.

We revised the Startup Weekend blueprint of taking a company from concept to creation in 54 hours into a two-day event where NU student entrepreneurs, developers, designers, marketers and all-around business enthusiasts will be immersed in the business development process in overdrive.  

Take a look at the Kellogg School of Management's news article on the StartupNU event.

Michael Marasco, the director of the Farley Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Linda Darragh, the executive director of the Kellogg Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative, spoke on the business model canvas and more during the weekend. Plus Rishi Shah and Shradha Agarwal, co-founders of ContextMedia,
shared lessons learned.
