Beginning with Thursday night pitches and continuing through testing, business model development, and basic prototype creation, 48-Hour Challenge culminates on Saturday night demos to a panel of potential investors and local entrepreneurs.

Participants are challenged with building functional startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. Mentors and coaches will be available throughout the two days to offer their functional expertise.
