Sounds cool but... What is Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event providing an immersive experience into entrepreneurship and innovative thinking. Participants are challenged to build functional startups during an intensive program centered on action, innovation, and education. Learn, Network, Startup!
More about Startup Weekend:
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a co-founder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic, but fun, world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
We are already excited to see you on October 21-23 !
