- developers and other tech-related professionals,
- designers of all types,
- anyone with talents/skills in business, sales, finance, legal, health, wellness, mindfulness
- students from universities and even high schools,
- professionals looking to a careers switch,
- all-time learners or maybe someone that has ZERO knowledge of anything but they would like to explore themselves!
🌳 Startup Weekends is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. The 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.
💡 Startup weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
🏆 Our goal is to encourage and inspire more female leaders in startup teams and to connect more women to the vast number of resources and mentors available in our startup community. That's why we want you to be part of this weekend and join some of the most passionate, talented and entrepreneurial-minded women across our community!
🙋🏻 Are men allowed to attend?
