Startup Weekend Cape Town, 11-13th September 2015
The event: We bring together a diverse group of people passionate about making a positive impact. In 54 hours, participants share ideas, form teams, design products and launch startups. Startup Weekend Cape Town begins with open-mic 60-second pitches on Friday night that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable concepts. Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on user research, customer development, validating their ideas and building prototypes with the help of experienced coaches from relevant markets. On Sunday, teams demo their products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges.
