Startup Weekend Cluj is back! And this time with an edition dedicated to women entrepreneurs ❤️

What’s different about this event?
Techstars Global Startup Weekend Cluj Women's Edition is designed to engage more entrepreneurs and provide them with the necessary resources for long-term success. The weekend will be focused on empowering more women within our community to lend their voice to innovation.

Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with? Techstars Global Startup Weekend Women is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team. Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

- 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
