Have you ever wondered what it takes to make your ‘Big Idea’ come true?
Your time is here!
Startup Weekend Iasi is BACK again for its 3rd edition – we’ve got over 300 participants, mentors, judges and visitors so far, people coming together over the course of 54 hours on a fantastic weekend.
Register now before it sells out!
Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures in an accelerated way. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs and as of November 2014, 1,900 events have been held worldwide, involving over 150,000 entrepreneurs across more than 127 countries.
The result?over 10,000 startups have been created all over the world.
People around the globe come together for one-weekend long events to pitch ideas, form teams, get the know-how 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 routine, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.
The official Startup Weekend Iasi language is English. The organizers, the pitchers, the coaches and the jury will be speaking English Why? Because it's the Lingua Franca of startups, because we have invited international mentors and jury members, because we don't want to exclude other nationalities and we want the world outside to know and understand what the heck we're doing here. :)
Join us for a fantastic experience!
