Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- An entrepreneurial event that has spurred a nationwide movement is moving its way into downtown Fargo this weekend.

The Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation organized North Dakota's first Startup Weekend. 60 designers, developers, and startup enthusiasts will form teams, and come up with ideas for a startup business.

The event ends Sunday night, when teams present their startups to a judging panel.

Jim Garin, GFMEDC President says, "To think that this can start on Friday night with some ideas and end on Sunday with businesses being developed for the market. That's what's so exciting about it, it's just that creative atmosphere and buzz that's already existing in Fargo, just bringing it to a new height."

The weekend kicks off tonight at 6:30. The Sunday night judging is at the Fargo Theatre and open to the public.
