Startup Weekend is a continuously changing event so it remains an impactful and valuable event for the city. A great community was formed over the last nine events. Students became entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs became students again. After all, we are here to make you think twice, challenge you, feed you with knowledge, and create an environment where you feel save to be who you are, make mistakes and launch a startup.

So why not have a launch party like every other year? Because we think we can do better. We wanted to have a valuable impact by organising multiple events that allow people to gain applicable knowledge and become familiar with what the startup eco-system of Groningen has to offer. Inspiring speakers and community leaders prepared workshops for you at several venues throughout Groningen. The selected venues play a vital role in the startup eco-system by facilitating entrepreneurship. So make sure you get to know them and their community.

During the workshops you will actively participate, learn, discuss and gain experience that you can apply while starting or running a startup. The whole month of November is full of events that will spark the entrepreneur in you. On 17/18/19th of november the 10th edition of Startup Weekend Groningen will take place. We kindly invite you to join the workshops and bring the acquired knowledge into practice during Startup Weekend Groningen. There are only 30 tickets available per workshop so make sure you make your reservation as soon as possible.
