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!

    Family turns health issue to the start of a family business

    What turned out to be a health issue for Dave Cole turned into the start of a family business for he and his wife Malinda. In the early ‘90s, Dave discovered he was lactose intolerant to cow's milk, and found that goat milk and cheese worked better for him. From there, the couple raised their own goats to produce milk and cheese right in their back yard. Last month, the Coles decided to share their home made goat cheese with the public, and opened Fishing Creek Creamery.
