Charlotte entrepreneurs get a shot to make their idea reality within the span of a weekend. They’re getting that chance thanks to the Charlotte Startup Weekend hosted at Packard Place Uptown.

This is the sixth session for the start-up since its launch in 2009. Six ideas continue to be successful businesses thanks to the weekend event.

Entrepreneurs pitched their ideas Friday night. They voted on what ideas should move forward. On Saturday and Sunday, attendees work in teams on the handful of ideas. On Sunday night, a panel of judges vote on the winner who receives 15,000 dollars worth of startup aid.

The youngest entrepreneur who pitched his idea this weekend is 11-years-old!
