Why you should join?

  1. You will experience what it's like in the startup world, and learn first hand about every step of building a business. At the very least it'll be a memorable weekend away from your usual daily routine.
  2. You might find your perfect co-founder soulmate with whom you'll go on to launch a successful startup, be it this weekend or down the road.
  3. We take good care of you during the weekend. All you need to bring is yourself and your laptop.

How does it work?

The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Startup Weekend is an event designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical people.

Beginning with Friday night, participants get 60 seconds to pitch their ideas to the crowd and try to recruit the best talent in the room. Continuing through brainstorming, business model development, and basic prototype creation, the Startup Weekend culminates in Sunday night demos and presentations, where teams present their Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to a panel of expert judges, fellow participants and other guests.
