Learn how to start your SmartData/ AI startup in 54h !

Startup Weekend Strasbourg is launching its first Smart Data / AI edition.

Data is at the heart of our daily lives, and it has an impact on numerous economic sectors. IoT, e-commerce, autonomous vehicles, medicine, robotics - just to name a few of the most popular applications. The rise of Artificial Intelligence is even creating new jobs. It’s up to you to show your imagination, skills and team spirit to propel the European capital to the top of this field.

For 54 hrs, find out what it’s like to be an entrepreneur by testing a Data / AI startup idea. You will have 60 seconds to pitch your idea before selecting the projects for the weekend. Coaches and experts will be there to help you throughout the event. You’ll learn how to pitch, validate an idea, develop a business model, and much more. In the end, you will give a final presentation in front of a jury of experts.

Tickets are available here:
