42′s Founder and CEO Christopher Kingsley will be a coach in the Lincoln installment of “Startup Weekend,” a 3-day conference that will bring together young entrepreneurs in Lincoln, Neb.
“I wanted to help out as a mentor at Startup Weekend because I remember how important early conversations, interactions and revelations exchanged with mentors profoundly affected our path,” Kingsley said.
Startup Weekend is a worldwide movement that gathers young entrepreneurs together in multiple cities. The idea is simple: teams of designers, developers and product managers band together and form a startup in 54 hours. Along the way, teams work with local startup business managers as coaches and also hear keynote speakers.
Participants will be able to pitch their ideas to peers as well as meet with mentors and coaches. The event will include the techicncal side of start ups as well as valuable business tips and topics.
“This community is filled with so many veteran minds waiting to engage each other and the next generation as we push Lincoln, Nebraska, and the world forward,” Kingsley said. “Our startup community is deeply invested in each other as we all try to make our way through the new frontiers and possibilities available to entrepreneurs and those that surround them.”
Events start on Friday, Sept. 7th. For all the details, click on the “schedule” tab here.
