Start your own business in 54 hrs

Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where developers, designers and business folks come together to pitch an idea and launch a business, all in one weekend.  It is a great opportunity to test startup ideas, meet potential co-founders, build the community in Bremerhaven and surroundings and launch your next startup this autumn!

Come start a company, learn something new, test your developer skills, maybe meet your future co-founder – either way you’ll have the most fun you’ve ever had! Startup Weekend Bremerhaven follows a basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch a startup idea and receive feedback from peers. Teams organically form around top ideas, as determined by popular vote. Each team has 54 hours to create a business model, code, design, and determine market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations of top ideas to entrepreneurial leaders.

At the Startup Weekend Bremerhaven you can meet participants from all fields. During the weekend you will develop your ideas into business models. You will have access to inspiring coaches and top-notch startup experts who will support you. In the end you will present your business models to the jury, who will give you feedback and choose the best business models.

Included in the event price are all presentations, the food and all drinks. In addition all participants will receive an attractive package of vouchers and services which are useful for every startup. Event language will be English.

Katrin Pohlmann
Social Entrepreneur

"In 2010 I quit my job to start my own business. At first, I focused on the development of writing applicaton forms for public funding of other institutions. However, during the last years, this entreprenural focus shifted towards the development, implementation and evaluation of my own projects. The focus of these are the integration of migrants and refugees, language classes and adult education in the framework of a life-long learning concept. For me, self-employed work means to be able to make these adjustments, sometimes as an adaptation to the customer's demands, sometimes as a reorientation of one's own work. Of course, this requires the continuous expansion of one's skills and knowledge."
