Square One Startup Weekend


Mitch Smith, Managing Editor for Print

For those who are interested in starting their own business here is some important information for you.

The Parker College of Business is hosting an event called Square 1 Startup which is an opportunity for all entrepreneurs to take advantage of and apply for. The deadline for applying is tomorrow February, 20. 

This event started in 2014 as a Georgia Southern 3 day startup (3DS) and over time developed into Square One Weekend. For those that don’t know Square One is a student organization at Georgia Southern and they work hard to manage and organize this opportunity for students. 

On the Parker College of Business website they say, “All startups begin at Square one, and that’s just what the mission of this event is. Students from across the university apply.”

In the past around 50 students were selected to cooperate and share ideas in order to kick-start new business. The focus is on learning-by-doing while consistent with teams that are made up of students from several different majors. 

Applications and more information about Square One can be found here.
