Startup Weekend Iasi 16 - 18 February 2018
Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 3000 past events in 135 countries around the world.
The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 800 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.
If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
Whatever you are building, our sponsors and community have put together some fantastic resources to help you build your idea:

I had venture capital investment, I’ve won an accelerator with my previous startup, and I love remote work.

Well, let us introduce you to Alex, the founder and CEO of PixTeller.Besides sharing his vision, he drives PixTeller's overall business strategy. Being a Technology lover, he started coding in high school and now he is one of the best designers and web developers out there.Along the years, he experienced both success and failures.Alex first designed PixTeller to create Picture Quotes & Posters. Then, he realised that people need a better, faster and easier tool to create graphic designs - not just for fun, but for business or commercial purposes also. This is how one of the best online design tool was born.When he is not working on building the next generation of design tools, he is most probably riding his bike in the deepest forests around, exploring the unknown (space, aliens) or spending time with his family and friends. Interesting guy, isn't he?
Since we are small teams working in various countries, building and maintaining virtual teams spanning multiple time zones, cultural differences and being comprised of distinct mentalities is crucial to our success. Choosing the right tools for communication, collaboration and establishing clearly defined processes and standards to give team members the ability to be creative at their own schedule has proven invaluable.
I love to work with people, to communicate, listen, learn, adopt. Finding an opportunity in every challenge defines me as a person. A relaxed but focused atmosphere at work is my main principle, to allow for long term success under high work loads.
