(Ne)jen ženský klub

Pohybujete se v oblasti marketingu, PR, IT, grafiky, copywritingu, investic… Nezáleží na tom, jak velcí jste profesionálové, ale na tom, jaký máte zápal a chuť podílet se na nových věcech.
Máte nápad na produkt nebo službu, která by lidem usnadnila život? Často se v práci setkáváte s problémem, který vás zpomaluje a víte, jak ho vyřešit (ať už je to systém pro archivaci PR výstupů nebo rezervační aplikace pro restauraci)? Na 
Startup Weekendu ho můžete přivést na svět. Určitě tady sestavíte funkční tým, který vám s tím pomůže. Během 54 hodin si se svým týmem projdete celým procesem od generování nápadu, přes designování výsledného produktu/služby, jeho testování, přípravy business plánu a propagace, až po jeho launch před porotou, od které dostanete zpětnou vazbu a možná i převezmete i hlavní cenu.

Cena vstupenky na SW zahrnuje:
  • vstup na akci po celý víkend,
  • možnost navrhnout vlastní nápady na pitchingu v pátek večer
  • mentoring hvězd z českého startupového prostředí
  • moderátora XY (Ahoj, XY!)
  • 7x jídlo plus káva a čaje během víkendu
  • 1x úžasné tričko ze Startup weekendu
  • panel zkušených porotců, osobností z odvětví IT a startupů

(Not)only Women´s Club

You´re interested in marketing, public relations, IT, graphics, copywriting, investments... It doesn't matter how much experienced, but how enthusiastic and passionate about participating in new projects you are.
Do you have an idea for new product or service, that would make people's life easier? You often facing a problem at work, that slows you down and you know how to solve it (for example archiving PR outputs, reservation app for restaurants, etc.)?
On Startup Weekend you will have a great opportunity to bring your idea to the world. Surely you will put together a team to help you with that. Within 54 hours you will complete the whole process with the team - from generating an idea through designing the final product/service, testing it, preparing a business plan and promoting it, until the final launch in front of the jury. You will then receive feedback from the jury and who knows - maybe take the main prize.

The price of the SW ticket includes:
  • entrance to the event throughout the day
  • possibility to propose your own ideas during pitching on Friday night
  • mentoring by experts from the Czech startup environment· anchorman XY (Hello, XY!)
  • 7x meal plus coffee and tea during the weekend
