A group of local university students wrapped up their first Startup Weekend last night [Sunday], spending three days brainstorming and developing a business idea. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey has more.
Startup Weekend lets developers, designers and marketers come together to practice their entrepreneurial chops.
Working in teams, participants are given just 54 hours to execute their idea, culminating in a five-minute pitch to a panel of judges.
Bryan McArdle of the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada is one of the organizers.
