Global Entrepreneurship Week is a community partner. Thanks you for your support.

Startup Palm Beach is gearing up for its second annual Global Entrepreneurship Week, the world’s largest celebration of innovators and startups featuring 35,000 events across 125 countries, on November 14, 2014 through November 21, 2014 in Downtown West Palm Beach. Global Entrepreneurship Week is a catalyst for local startup enthusiasts and aspiring entrepreneurs to build products, launch startups and form meaningful connections with designers, developers and potential co-founders.

The week-long event also provides opportunities to establish relationships with investors, including Startup Palm Beach Capital, an angel investment firm that actively supports South Florida startups. The company has invested in numerous startups ranging from medical and education to travel and sports.

“West Palm Beach is still in its infancy when it comes to curating a vibrant startup ecosystem, however the foundation is ripe to create a thriving community,” said Startup Palm Beach founder, Nicholas Mohnacky. “The tax structure, quality of life, access to capital and mentorship is abundant. That’s why it’s so important to bring together local talent through events like Global Entrepreneurship Week.”

The week kicks off with Startup Weekend on November 14, 2014 through November 16, 2014, during which participants work together to create an innovative product or service to present to a panel of judges − including Paul Leone, President of The Breakers Palm Beach; Joe Cardenas, SVP of Commercial Lending at BB&T; Chris Callahan, Founder of Startup Palm Beach Capital and Chris Nielsen, CEO of Levatas − on the final evening of Startup Weekend. Winners receive non-cash prizes from Google, a Startup Weekend global sponsor, as well as follow-up support from local entrepreneurs and potential investors.

The highly anticipated BarCamp, a casual, participant-led workshop focusing on early-stage web applications, consumer mobile and cloud solutions, will be held on November 18, 2014.
