Starting Friday, March 1, is the third Spokane Startup Weekend. We described it in a Spokesman.com story last week.
Here's the notable update. Washington State University is backing the idea for its students. The school will pay the total entry fee for up to 70 WSU students from across the state.
The general student fee is $55. For others, it's $85 (and includes meals over the Friday-Saturday period). Any other student from area schools is also invited to register.
The WSU “scholarship” plan comes from a grant from the WSU CougParents Program made to the WSU Spokane student government. Students can take advantage of that registration option at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0C4BAAA929AA8-startup.
Notably, that link says only 25 slots have been taken. That means 45 remain to be filled at no cost.
