El evento es uno de los eventos de Startup Weekend que se celebrarán en todo el mundo como parte de Techstars Startup Weekend. La temática en esta ocasión es soluciones y servicios digitales a través de Blockchain. Esta edición se centrará en ideas que utilicen el poder y el potencial de la tecnología blockchain para resolver problemas. La tecnología blockchain nos permite desarrollar innovaciones para diversos mercados, como el financiero, la seguridad, la movilidad, la salud y muchos otros. Sabemos que Blockchain puede hacer lo mismo durante las próximas dos décadas y esta es la oportunidad de ser los primeros en proponer y construir modelos negocios. 

Startup Weekend Blockchain Edition es un ambiente acogedor y de apoyo para emprendedores que desean concretar sus ideas de negocio:
  • Desarrollar nuevas ideas de negocio.
  • Fortalecer habilidades valiosas de liderazgo y redes de contactos.

¿Qué es un Startup Weekend?

En un Startup Weekend se tratan de aprender a través del acto de crear/hacer. Es un movimiento global de líderes activos y empresarios donde se aprende los principios básicos de la creación de nuevas empresas y el lanzamiento de empresas exitosas. Los participantes con diversas especialidades se reúnen para compartir ideas, formar equipos y lanzar startups.

¿Qué hay de diferente en este evento?
Este Startup Weekend está diseñado para involucrar a emprendedores y proporcionarles los recursos necesarios para el éxito a largo plazo. El fin de semana se centrará en proponer soluciones digitales para nuevos negocios innovadores.

Si bien comprendemos que se necesita una comunidad de creativos para ayudar a construir una idea desde el concepto hasta la ejecución, este evento solo apoyará soluciones digitales con Blockchain. Los participantes van a perfeccionar su talento creativo y emprendedor en un entorno seguro que inspira la toma de decisiones y la innovación con la ayuda de una comunidad más amplia de personas dispuestos a compartir sus conocimientos para promover el cambio y alimentar nuevas ideas.

¿Cómo funciona?
El concepto es simple: las emprendedores lanzan su idea de negocio y reciben comentarios de sus compañeros. Los equipos se forman orgánicamente en torno a las ideas principales seguidos por un frenesí de 54 horas de creación, codificación, diseño y validación del mercado de modelos de negocio. El fin de semana culminará con presentaciones frente a los líderes empresariales locales que brindan otra oportunidad de retroalimentación crítica antes de elegir un equipo ganador final.

¿Por qué debería participar?
Ya sea que los emprendedores encuentren cofundadores, conozcan a alguien nuevo o aprendan una habilidad muy superior a su trabajo habitual, todos tienen la garantía estar mejor preparado para navegar en el caótico pero divertido mundo de las nuevas empresas.

"El comercio en el Internet ha venido a depender exclusivamente de instituciones financieras las cuales sirven como terceros confiables para el procesamiento de pagos electrónicos. Mientras que el sistema funciona lo suficientemente bien para la mayoría de las transacciones, aún sufre de las debilidades inherentes del modelo basado en confianza". Satoshi Nakamoto.

"Los negocios se construyen sobre la base de la confianza. Blockchain se constituye como una tecnología que cataliza soluciones para generar confianza en una red de negocios y agiliza los procesos basados en la misma". Yuro Gadea
