Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event held in West Palm Beach where entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners work to create ideas for businesses and get advice from seasoned small business owners. The event also attracts angel investors and talent recruiters who are looking to find the Next Big Thing in Palm Beach.
