Turn your idea into action. Launch a startup in 54 hours!

Startup Weekend is a weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical or design backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds. Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.

The weekend doesn’t teach entrepreneurship in a boring classroom setting, we model it in a fun, interactive, and results driven way. Startup Weekend is not about textbooks or lectures, it is about doing and acting on your ideas. As a result, we have become one of the leading catalysts for startup creation, co-founder dating, and entrepreneurship education in startup ecosystems around the world.

REGISTRATION available through Eventbrite website or via Bank Transfer (BCA - KCP Graha Inti Fauzi) 375 141 3295 a.n. Putri Iva Izzati for IDR500.000. Please send your receipt of transaction to and
