Let's make something BIG thanks to Artificial Intelligence!

Startup Weekend is unique opportunity if you want to make a first step to START with your idea and DO a startup.  We are open to support all good startup ideas but looking especially for projects that can most benefit from AI - best one will receive special Jury Award and a chance to attend global finals in Paris!

Do you help us change the world with Artificial Intelligence?

If your company wants to reach out to talented developers and creative people or show that innovation is important to your brand, let's talk about cooperation as a partner of Startup Weekend Szczecin AI :) Contact us for more details.

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!
