Startup Weekend è un movimento globale di imprenditori attivi e responsabili che volgiono imparare le basi della fondazione di start-up e il lancio di progetti di successo. E’ la più grande comunità di imprenditori appassionati, con eventi in oltre 100 paesi e 600 città in tutto il mondo. Dalla Mongolia al Sudafrica passando per Londra ed il Brasile, persone di tutto il mondo si riuniscono per un fine settimana per lanciare idee, formare i team, e avviare le imprese. Tutti gli eventi Startup Weekend seguono lo stesso modello di base: chiunque è benvenuto a presentare la propria idea e ricevere feedback dai loro coetanei. Le squadre si formano attorno alle idee migliori e poi da quel momento saranno 54 ore di energia pure focalizzate alla creazione del modello di business, lo sviluppo, la progettazione e la validazione. I fine settimana culminano con le presentazioni di fronte a leader imprenditoriali locali con un'altra opportunità per un feedback critico. 

Sia che tu voglia incontrare esperti, trovare un co-fondatore, arrichire il tuo team, incontrare qualcuno di nuovo, o imparare un mestiere molto al di fuori delle abitudini, avrai comunque la garanzia di lasciare poi l’evento con una preparazione migliore per affrontare il caotico ma divertente mondo delle start-up. Se volete mettervi nei panni di un imprenditore, registrati ora per quello che sarà il miglior weekend della tua vita!
 

Startup Weekend è un evento NON PROFIT: tutti i fondi sono utilizzati per il benessere dei partecipanti ed in caso di eccesso rispetto a quanto preventivato, la rimanente parte sarà reinvestita in eventi per la crescita della comunità.

Il prezzo del biglietto comprende 2 cene, 2 colazioni e 2 pranzi 

1.      È un evento che inizia venerdì pomeriggio 29 Maggio e termina domenica 31 Maggio presso #WCAP in via Aurelio Saliceti 10

2.      L'obiettivo dell'evento è imparare a fare impresa, imparare a collaborare in team con persone sconosciute, conoscere co-founder,  collaboratori, apprendere nuove skills,... 

3.      È a numero chiuso e si partecipa come singoli, acquistando un biglietto - QUI 
Ti consigliamo di affrettarti in quanto abbiamo un numero limitato di biglietti a prezzo promozionale

4.      Nel prezzo del biglietto sono compresi cibo, bevande, cartoleria etc,... che saranno offerti ai partecipanti, dall'inizio alla fine della manifestazione. 

5.      Siamo in grado di offrire tutto ciò grazie al sostegno di sponsor locali e nazionali, sensibili al tema dell'imprenditoria e dell'innovazione.   

6.      Le idee vengono proposte dagli stessi partecipanti, che voteranno le migliori su cui lavorare in team da 5 ad 8 persone nei due giorni successivi. 

7.      Non è necessario presentarsi con un'idea. 

8.      Chi non si presenta con una sua idea si divertirà a votare quelle degli altri e a farsi scegliere nel team che preferisce.

9.      Una giuria valuterà le 3 migliori idee che saranno supportate nello sviluppo tramite i premi 

10.    I premi saranno finalizzati a supportare il successivo sviluppo delle 3 idee.

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs, with events in over 100 countries and 600 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.   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 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 with another opportunity for critical feedback.   Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a co-founder, 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. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!

Startup Weekend is NOT FOR PROFIT event: all funds are used for the participants and in case of an excess, the remaining part will be reinvested in events for the growth of the community.
