Ever had an idea for starting a startup in Art and Culture?
Do you have an idea in Art that you'd like to pursue but don't know where to start or who to start with?
Here’s your opportunity to turn your ideas into action in 54 exciting hours. Work with other technologists, artists, entrepreneurs, designers, mobile developers and product experts to build real solutions to the art world's most pressing problems, using technology and business models from other industries to innovate and disrupt the arts world - all in just one weekend.
Art and technology together present a great opportunity to dramatically improve products and services in an industry traditionally low in technological innovation.
Here are some of the fun facts:
- Did you know that in the USA, museums attract more than 850 million visits per year, compared with only 483 million for major league sports and theme parks?
- Two thirds of Europeans aged 15 or above enjoy and pay for art experiences, whether performances, exhibition visits or art tours.
- The visual arts market is worth a staggering $60.8 billion, yet remains largely untouched by innovation both for consumers and business users.
Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams.
Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
- 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
