Such an event like the Start Up Weekend, organised by a team of volunteers who believe in bringing ideas to life, create and share life-changing experiences, could never ever take place without the financial help from local institutions and companies. We are amazed about the high number of responses  willing to help us organise this special edition of the Start Up Weekend encouraging female participation and entrepreneurship.

2. Arrange great food and drinks to keep everyone fit and tank energy during the day and network in the evening.

3. Get prizes for the winners, because there must be a winner. :-)
