WHAT DID YOU DO LAST WEEKEND?
If you want to be able to answer 'I created a company in 54 hours!' then keep reading...
Startup Weekend Lisbon is the best deal around; the tickets cover seven meals, snacks, access to exclusive resources from our sponsors, and of course, drinks and all the coffee you can drink throughout the weekend.
Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical or design backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds; some people come with ideas, some come up with something spontaneously or just join the idea that they like the most.
Call us biased, but we think that there are dozens of reasons why you should come to a Startup Weekend! Since we know your time is valuable, we’ll only list the top 7:
Education: Startup Weekends are all about learning through the act of creating. Don’t just listen to theory, build your own strategy and test it as you go.
Build your network: This isn’t just a happy-hour. Startup Weekend attracts your community’s best makers and do-ers. By spending a weekend working to build scalable companies that solve real-world problems, you will build long-lasting relationships and possibly walk away with a job or even an investor.
Co-Founder Dating: We all know it’s not just about the idea – it’s about the team. Startup Weekend is hands down the best way to find someone you can actually launch a startup with.
Learn a new skill: Step outside of your comfort zone. With a whole weekend dedicated to letting your creative juices flow, Startup Weekends are perfect opportunities to work on a new platform, learn a new programming language, or just try something different.
Actually launch a business: Over 36% of Startup Weekend startups are still going strong after 3 months.
Get face time with thought leaders: Local tech and startup leaders participate in Startup Weekends as coaches and judges. Get some one-on-one time with the movers and shakers in your community.
Join a global community: Join over 45,000 Startup Weekend alumni, all on a mission to change the world.
