What is Startup Weekend?
The hardest part of starting up is starting out. At TechStars Startup Weekend, you'll be immersed in the ideal environment for startup magic to happen.
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event, where attendees pitch ideas, form teams and start companies. These events are very community focused and provide a place for budding entrepreneurs to find co-founders, mentors, and momentum for their ideas.
The participants that attend have 60 seconds to make a pitch (optional), the pitches are whittled down to the top ideas, and then teams form around the ideas to come out with several developed companies or projects. Finally, the weekend culminates with presentations and demos in front of an audience of judges and potential investors.
In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. So, what are you waiting for; join us!
Day 1: Meet, Pitch & Team Up
Day 2: Learn & Work
Day 3: Present & Celebrate
Who can attend Startup Weekend?
Anyone :) All are welcome, and the more diversity the better. Young and old, newbies and old hats, men and women, developers, MBA's, designers, researchers, serial entrepreneurs, corporate veterans... anyone that has a passion for entrepreneurship!
