Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Attending Startup Weekend is a good starting point!
All of this plus food and drinks during all of the weekend!
What do we do in the global Startup Weekend community?
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 (as determined by popular vote) 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 providing another opportunity for critical feedback.Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!

Come join us if you are a programmer, designer, developer, marketer, creative mind, researcher, student, engineer, work in a company, entrepreneurial spirit or a whole third.You are part of a Startup Weekend dream team if you are curious about business, developing, creating, innovating and networking.
