There are many perks of attending Startup Weekend Milwaukee, including prizes. That’s right, prizes. This year, we’re happy to announce prizes for the top three placing teams thanks to generous donations from Godfrey & Kahn, gener8tor and UpScalability.

Here’s what’s up for grabs at this year’s Startup Weekend Milwaukee:

1st Place

  • Discounted legal services for your new startup company, compliments of Godfrey & Kahn, S.C.

Of course, everyone is a winner at Startup Weekend Milwaukee. But there are many opportunities to be a prize winner. Throughout the weekend, the SWMKE team will be handing out some pretty sick door prizes to teams doing cool things, participants with the best/most positive attitudes, participants making giant strides, most fashionable outfit choices, most ridiculous outfit choices, that one guy who should really go to the bathroom because he’s been coding (and sitting in the same spot) for 12 hours straight, etc.

Good luck, and see you all Friday night!

 

*UpScalability’s subscriptions to the online Scalability tool + Scalability Work Sessions are for one user per team. Work sessions can be split over a period of time.
