Let's celebrate the startup community during the 10th edition of startup weekend Groningen.

Startup Weekend is all about learning new skills, meeting new people, build great products and launch startups.

In the last 9 editions Startup Weekend Groningen had more than 575 participants, pitching over 200 ideas, of which 65 were able to form a group that validated their ideas, created a business case and had a lot of fun throughout the weekend.

Do you have the next idea for the new Instagram, coffee machine or Github? Or do you want to develop new skills, meet new people and have a great time? You should definitely join the Startup Weekend Community.

In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders and sponsors who are ready to help you get started. Your community is here to help you.

In celebration of entrepreneurship everywhere, we are again part of the Global Startup Weekend celebration once again this year on November 17-19. So even more good stuff is coming. Together with Startup Weekend Groningen there will be over 60 other Startup Weekends all over the world during this weekend.

Your ticket includes food, snacks, drinks, mentoring and the event itself! So don’t wait to long and buy your ticket.

Thank you for being so awesome! Do you have something cool to share with the community? Drop us a line and we will get in touch with you!
