Business competition Startup Weekend Pensacola kicks off Nov. 10 at cowork @nnex


This year’s Startup Weekend Pensacola, a three-day business pitch competition for entrepreneurs, designers and developers, kicks off Nov. 10 in downtown Pensacola at cowork @nnex, 13 Palafox Place.

Joe Vinson, an organizer of the event, said at stake is a bushel of resources beneficial for small businesses and fledgling entrepreneurs.

“They’re not cash prizes, but they’re resources that are valuable to startups such as free legal advice or a free website domain,” said Vinson, who also works at the University of West Florida’s Division of Research and Strategic Innovation. “We’re partnering with some co-working spaces, who will give out some day passes. They’re non-cash prizes, but they’re very helpful with startup businesses.”
