The DEC Network is excited to host the Dallas return of Techstars Startup Weekend, a three-day program that immerses aspiring entrepreneurs in the world of startups. More seasoned founders can connect with other creators and improve their knowledge.
The program kicks off on Friday, April 21, and runs through Sunday, April 23, at VariSpace Las Colinas.
Techstars Startup Weekend Dallas is an opportunity to “learn how to think, work, and build like a startup in just 54 thrilling hours,” according to The DEC. Participants will have the chance to meet with experienced mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors to “learn how to get more done faster and even kickstart their own business.”
This year’s theme for Startup Weekend is Emerging Tech for Diverse Entrepreneurs.

Whether you’re an experienced entrepreneur or just starting out, the nonprofit organization said, Techstars Startup Weekend is an excellent chance to develop new skills, network with others in the North Texas startup community, and gain insights into building a successful business.
