Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. Startup Weekend Orlando EDU is focused on creating startups that will change the way that education is delivered. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. Winning ideas will receive $5,000 in startup capital.

FSU FIlm Program's Digital Domain Institute in West Palm Beach

A few months ago, there was a lot of fanfare about Digital Domain moving to Port St Lucie on the East Coast - between Orlando and South Florida. The urban legend is one of the owners grew up in Florida... don't fact-check me on that. Now the former mayor of West Palm Beach has worked a deal with Digital Domain and FSU's much-sought-after film school to open a campus down there.
