About Techstars Global Startup Weekend COVID-19 Edition: 

This series of online Techstars Startup Weekends are run at a country level, focused on developing solutions that directly tackle COVID-19-related challenges. They are 54-hour online events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs - you'll connect with amazing mentors, industry experts, founders, and partners who are ready to help you get started. 

Each country will bring together hundreds or even thousands of participants that will work on prototypes for three days. This event is not only about bringing together developers who can work on software-based solutions for the crisis. It’s an opportunity for everyone interested in the topic to inspire and be inspired and to work together on developing inclusive solutions. Here is the website for more details https://covid.startupweekend.org/
Tickets to register your place for the event are completely free but you are able to make a donation. Your donation will go directly to the World Health Organization, who have been on the forefront in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. If you prefer not to donate to the WHO, please select the ‘free ticket’ option.  If you wish to make a donation, simply add any amount you wish to donate to the ‘Donation’ ticket option or select a predefined amount. You don’t need to get a ‘free ticket’ in addition to your ‘donation ticket’ since making a donation will register you as a participant.
