What is Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekend is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1800 past events in 500 cities around the world.
During 54 hours, developers, designers, marketers, product managers ans startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups!
On Friday evening, participants present their fresh new ideas. Best ideas are selected and teams are formed to start their projects.
Over the activities during the weekend, participants get valuable advices, inspiration, coaching, and new contacts. The goal is to develop a “working prototype” and a “business model” to present on Sunday evening to a jury of experts. Best projects are then awarded and the weekend ends celebrating participants.
Why you should come?
Because Startup Weekend is an opportunity for you to show your talents, your skills, and to share your ideas. It is also a excellent way to collaborate with professionals from different horizons and to meet real entrepreneurs, journalists and investors.
