Start your own fintech in 54 hrs!
The Startup Weekend Fintech is the first of it's kind to happen in Germany and is one of the highlights of the Fintechweek 2017 in Hamburg (www.fintechweek.de).
The Startup Weekend 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.
Why Fintech? In the last years Hamburg has also established a flourishing FinTech scene whose players are pushing innovation forward. Not least because of the great success of Fintech Week Hamburg, happening again from November 6-10, 2017 with more than 40 events and 1,000 visitors.
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.
