Idea to reality in 54 hours - innovate the wellbeing and fitness scene!

[한국어는 아래에 있습니다.]

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 Startup Weekend 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.

Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
  • 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
  • One-on-one time with amazing mentors
  • A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
  • All the internet and coffee you can consume.

No talk, all action!
◆ Startup Weekend 란?
Startup Weekend 는 주말부터 시작해서 열정적인 창업가, 개발자, 디자이너들이 모여 새로운 아이디어가 실현 가능한지 알아가는 실전 경험입니다. 일반적으로 Startup Weekend 참석자의 절반은 개발 또는 디자인을 할 수 있는 사람들이며 나머지 절반은 창업과 관련된 사업 아이디어를 가지고 있는 사람입니다. 주말동안 모든 음식이 제공됩니다.
참가자들은 금요일에 아이디어 발표를 통해 팀을 구성합니다. 토요일과 일요일에는 팀원들과 고객 개발, 아이디어 검증, LEAN Startup 등을 통해 최소 기능 제품(MVP) 개발에 중점을 두고 아이디어를 실현해갑니다. 일요일 저녁에는 프로토타입을 시연하고 전문가, 멘토들로부터 가치있는 피드백을 받습니다.
