It’s a unique way to bring your idea for a business to life.
At an event at Desmond Hall at the Coady International Institute this weekend, you can share your idea with the potential of moving the concept forward.  It’s called a Mash Up Weekend.  It’s organized by Mash Up Lab of Bridgewater, a consulting firm that matches business ideas from rural communities with expert advice.
The Founder and CEO of Mash Up Lab Andrew Button says anyone can pitch an idea at the opening session Friday night.
Later on Saturday, Button says  a judging panel will hear the pitches developed by the working groups.  Button says the judges will then offer advice on next steps.
The mash up weekend is being organized in conjunction with the St. FX Extension Department.  For more information on the mash up weekend go to
