Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI)

Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI), a local nonprofit organization, is gearing up for the Startup Weekend onNovember 3rd, 4th, and 5th. We are opening the event up to the public and specializing in targeting high school and college students. At the event attendees get to group up into teams consisting of people who specialize in entrepreneurship, business, coding, etc. and develop prototypes such as apps, software, or tangible object. The teams will work all weekend long and then present in front of a panel of judges who will vote on which team’s idea was the best. We will be awarding prizes that consist of tools and resources that will help the winning team create their company into a reality.
