Frequently asked questions
Why should I attend Startup 48?
If I can only attend two of the three days - can I still participate?
Can I pay at the door?
No. Because the organizers of the event need to order food and supplies, payments must be made in advance. If you are unable to pay online or need an invoice sent to you - please contact us via email.
Is this event student friendly?
Yes! University and college students are encouraged to attend. Discounted tickets are available during checkout (must show a student ID when registering on the first day of Startup 48).
What type of ideas and/or startup types are normally at this event?
The goal is to create an MVP (Minimal Viable Product) within 48 hours. Many ideas for Startup 48 center around web services, apps, and technology. We have also had services businesses, and products where a mock-up of a functional product can be designed over the weekend.
Can I pitch an existing business/product idea?
Am I expected to stick with my team and continue working on the idea after the event?
While most teams choose to continue working together, it is not required.
What should I bring to Startup 48?
Is transportation and lodging provided?
Attendees are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. Free street parking is available, and there is a reasonably priced parking ramp directly behind the event venue.
Can my pet dog and/or chinchilla attend the event?
No. Sorry. (Maybe next year).
