有没有想过怎样才能成为一个创业者?以及随之而来的,专业上、个人方面的挑战,高峰和低潮,失败和成功?创业周末是一项利用周末54小时的动手创业实战活动。在这儿,创业者和有着创业精神的人们能一起去找出创业点子,并验证其是否真的切实可行。平均而言,活动半数的参与者都拥有技术或设计背景,而另一半则拥有商业背景。

创业周末始于周五的开放麦陈述,参与者将会带来他们最好的点子并激发吸引其他人加入他们的队伍。在周六和周日,团队则专注于如何发展客户和验证自己的想法,实践精益创业的方法并创建一个最小可行产品的原型。在周日晚,团队们会演示他们的产品原型并获得专家小组宝贵的反馈意见。

所有的创业周末活动都遵循这些基本模式:任何人都可以来分享创业点子,并且得到朋辈的反馈。一个个团队从最好的点子中被创建起来,所以这是一个54小时的商业模型创立、编程、设计和市场验证的密集过程。

活动的高潮在于,团队将在本地的企业家领袖面前展现他们的成果,并且得到切实的评判和反馈。创业者们不管是成立公司,找到合伙人,遇到一些新的朋友或商业伙伴,或学到日常朝九晚五工作之外的新技能,任何人都可以从创业这个看起来有些乱但是很有趣的世界里找到乐子。

来吧,加入我们,迎接你人生中一个难忘的创业周末!
