I started a company today, what did you do?
What is Startup Weekend?
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders business angels and venture capitalists. Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.
Is this event for you?
What unites all attendees is a common interest in entrepreneurship: whether a serial entrepreneur or new to the startup scene, every attendee is interested in working with a like-minded, motivated and skilled team to develop a product or business in one weekend.
This year, more than ever before, thanks to our sponsor we will give to the 3 best projects and ideas incredible prizes! These amazing prizes will help the winning teams to develop their ideas and make them a solid reality even after the Startup Weekend. The awards will be assigned not as usual (following the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places) but in relation to the different themes of the ideas.
But which are these awesome prizes?! Here you go:
Creative Minds (all the audience will vote for the best team): Innovation platform - Lifetime license
People’s Project (most creative project): 1 free stand in one event organised at the Bozen-Bolzano Fiera Messe
So, do you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur? Register now!
