No Talk, All Action... Launch a FinTech Start-up in one weekend.
- You have a FinTech idea and are looking for talented team members?
- You've got talent and want to contribute to implementing an idea?
- You want to learn how an idea turns into a business model?
We are proud to have theScreener and Swiss Fintech as headline sponsors, followed by other big names in finance, tech, innovation, Startup, and design - such as IBM, Fintech Fusion, Codalis. These awesome sponsors will offer swag, mentoring, great prizes and assets that will help make the weekend a great success for all our participants.
The startup movement has accelerated growth in many cities and global industries, and fintech is one the most exciting and rapidly developing industries in the world! The time for entrepreneurs and innovators to work together and invest in their ideas is now. The industry in Switzerland is more susceptible to ideas now than ever before. Our goal for this event is to connect people who are passionate and want to tackle the tough challenges in the financial and fintech industries, all while learning-by-doing, firsthand, what makes a business and an idea successful.
How does Startup Weekend work:
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.
Why will this Startup Weekend be awesome?
We are really happy to have super great sponsors which would provide to our participant's super cool and efficient tools/process / tips for any Fintech Startups.
