MIXING POLISH-GERMAN STARTUP SCENE
We are working together with German partners to access best Techstars mentors and prominent VCs to bring them to Szczecin. Working close with Berlin-based partners, we aim to attract participants from across the border, letting you all work together on your projects, make valuable contacts and have lots of fun!
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback!
INTERNATIONAL TEAM OF PARTNERS AND MENTORS
We aim to make it an open, international (English spoken) event by bringing on board a bunch of international mentors from Germany, UK and Denmark. There will also be a fair number of them coming from various locations in Poland. All of the invited specialists will bring a mix of outstanding experience of founding & operational work within tech startups, funding strategies and sales & marketing. And most importantly we will provide you with networking opportunities in order to let you find yourselves in the loop of international startup community.
THE THREE-DAY STARTUP CRASH COURSE

Put your talents to work and build a real product, team, and brand for execution in the real world or even just your portfolio.
