Startup Week Gets Started
The College of Information Sciences and Technology’s fifth annual Startup Week officially kicks off today. Things got underway unofficially on Saturday with HackPSU, Penn State’s annual 24-hour hackathon, but today marks the beginning of lectures and other events.
The speaking appearances are some of the week’s biggest draws, particularly those by David Rusenko ’07 and Chris Fanini ’12, co-founders of Startup Week sponsors Weebly, the hugely successful Silicon Valley startup we profile in our upcoming May/June issue. Other titans of the tech industry on the schedule include Twitch CEO Emmett Shear, Reddit and Hipmunk co-founder Steve Huffman, and Teespring co-founder and CTO Evan Stites-Clayton.
