Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.

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 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.

Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event which brings together people with skill sets – from software developers and designers, to marketers and business people – to define a customer problem and develop a credible business around that problem. Whether you learn how to launch a startup, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside your usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave Startup Weekend better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.

The weekend is far from being an easy task, and you will finish up on the Sunday evening completely exhausted. But startup founders have been experiencing this journey since 2012, and it has become the single most-recommended learning event for new founders. Experience for yourself what becomes possible in a weekend when bright people meet the right environment.
