From an idea to a startup in 54 hours. Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start from or whom to start it with? 

Global Women Techstars Startup Weekend is an all-women Startup Weekend where entrepreneurs find their future business partners, break societal barriers, create a prototype, validate their business plans, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all within 54 hours!

What do you need to bring along?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your ideas and listen to others, then vote for the most interesting ideas and form teams with people who have diverse skill sets.

Your ideas should be innovative and should not be previously worked on. The ideas you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span across social, educational, financial, environmental, and several other issues. Over the course of the weekend, you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your Minimum Viable Product or MVP that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll receive feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely!
Important: Your idea should be new and not previously worked on.

Techstars Startup Weekend is a weekend-long experience. Your ticket includes:
1)7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend.
2)Benefits and discounts from our global partners.     
3)One-on-one time with highly skilled and expert mentors.
4)A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
5)All the internet and coffee out there!

Still, have questions, feel free to reach us at
