Take your idea from concept to creation in 54 hours
What is Startup Weekend Sustainability?Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
This will be the first ever Sustainability edition of Startup Weekend in Helsinki! We encourage you to put sustainability at the forefront and create the next big thing to overcome the most pressing problems of the world. You might challenge yourself this weekend by thinking how to:
- Extend a product’s life cycle
- Reduce food waste
- Design sustainable cities
- Foster user-based models instead of consumer-based models
- Create a sustainable solution to social, educational, financial, environmental, or other challenges.
How does it work?Startup Weekend is an event that offers you is a simple and proven process for taking fresh ideas from concept to creation in a matter of days.
Beginning with Friday night, you'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. Please bear in mind that your idea should be something you have not previously worked on.
Continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, the Startup Weekend culminates in Sunday night demos and presentations, where teams present their minimum viable product (MVP) to a panel of expert judges, fellow participants and other guests.
All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs and mentors. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.
