“You don’t know Startup Weekend?! This is the most amazing entrepreneurial community in the world! You should experience it for yourself!” This was the first conversation I had with Michel, back in Tallinn 6 years ago.

Fast forward, today we work side by side to organize the next Startup Weekend Brussels, 17-19 May. I guess Michel was right :) You should join us and experience it for yourself!

Is Startup Weekend for me?

Have you been mulling over an idea? Are you curious to test yourself in a new environment, far out of your comfort zone? Do you want to meet crazy smart and yet humble people? Are you looking for a mentor, co-founder, investor? Are you bored by the rainy weekends in Brussels and do you want to do something cool? Then, Startup Weekend Brussels is what you have been looking for!

Ok, but what is Startup Weekend?

The purpose of a Startup Weekend is to provide anyone all over the world the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship and develop the skills, connections, and confidence necessary to launch a company or build a more dynamic career. It’s a voluntary led initiative locally, supported by Techstars globally.

What makes it such a special community?

The people. And the #GiveFirst mentality. Can you imagine that we are a group of 20 organizers, who have volunteered our time in the last 4 months to organize this event? Even more, we have on board a fascinating jury, kick-ass mentors, a top-notch facilitator, generous sponsors and awesome community partners who all share the same vision as us. We all know how hard entrepreneurship is, and we are here to help and cheer for you in the first steps you take. And you gain access to this unique support system applies not only in Brussels, but in +1300 cities around the world.
