This year is the third for Panama City Startup Weekend, and the organizers have set high marks for another tremendous success. Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their teams. On Saturday and Sunday, teams focus on product development, proof of concept, lean startup methodologies, and a viable product. On Sunday evening, teams demo their prototypes and receive feedback from a panel of experts, plus a chance to win prizes and bragging rights as the Best 2016 Big Idea.
According to Pamela Kidwell, Executive Director/Business Innovation Center, “Last year’s event provided the space, time and collaboration to entrepreneurs to come together and share and learn. Past participants tell us how much they enjoy the event, and we are grateful to be a part of such an exciting weekend.”
