InnovateFV Weekend: Welcome & Introductions

The weekend of January 27 – 29, 2017 will be a historic one for the Town of Fuquay-Varina, NC. Innovate Fuquay-Varina culminates in a weekend of intense planning, preparation, and ultimately, the formation of several startup businesses in Fuquay-Varina. Beginning with a brief networking session Friday evening, the event will transition to the Pitch Phase. Participants wishing to pitch their business ideas will have 1 minute to present their idea to the entire audience, including our esteemed panel of judges. After all ideas have been pitched, the audience is then instructed to find the aspiring entrepreneur(s) they want to contribute their skills to, and Startup Teams will naturally begin to form  — thus planting the first startup “seeds” of the weekend. For the remainder of the weekend, each team’s goal is to develop their idea into a viable business model, refine it, and produce a presentation for Sunday evening — Initial Public Launch (IPL) Day.

  • Welcome & Introductions
  • Initial Pitches Begin (Max. 1-min per Presentation)
  • Audience Breaks into Teams Based On Ideas They Want to Support
  • “Startups” Begin to Form
  • Work Space Requests Submitted for Assignment
