Let’s take a look on previous editions of SWTimisoara:

From the 4th edition, we had 54 participants who wanted to improve their entrepreneurial skills. Over 1 weekend, at a wonderful venue, there were 19 ideas pitched, 8 final presentations. There were 9 awesome mentors who gave over 200 advises, shared ideas and feedback. 70 excellent pizzas, 200 coffees and beers. There are shared over 1000 memories shown in photos and many more in videos.

And all this insanity was created by 7 hard-working organizers helped by 10 local sponsors and 7 volunteers.

As for the the first 3 editions, SWTimisoara was pleased to have 194 attendees. A total of 80 ideas were pitched from which 26 were presented at the final pitch. Mentors were from all around the world starting with USA and ending Turkey. We had  Andrew Hyde as a facilitator, the founder of Startup Weekend. Magic tricks were performed by making 450 pizzas and 10 L of coffee disappear. 883 breakfasts and lunches fed our hungry participants in their time of need.

As you can see, we are growing stronger and rapidly. Participating at a Startup Weekend, can change the way you think about building a Startup of your own.

Become a hero and join us to this awesome adventure!
