NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Potential new business leaders spent 48 hours brainstorming this weekend at “Start Norfolk.”

Start Norfolk brings together entrepreneurs, engineers, and designers with the goal of building a viable start up business in just one weekend.

The event began Friday at the Innovation Research Park at Old Dominion University.

Contestants pitched their ideas to a panel of judges Friday and now they’ll spend the weekend in teams that were formed around the winning projects.

Organizers say the program is a catalyst for local innovation.

Teams presented their finished projects to judges on Sunday. The winning team received a package that included cash, rent, and other services to be used toward launching their actual project.
