54 hours is all you need to help the world of tomorrow, today!

Do you have an idea you would like to pursue or a problem you would like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with?

For the first time, we will organize a Startup Weekend dedicated entirely to social impact. Barcelona is the hub of the collaborative economy and therefore we want to take advantage of its enormous potential and appeal.

Participants will be able to present their projects that seek to tackle our generation’s most challenging problems and receive feedback from mentors in the social impact community. The participants will have to develop the idea as well as devise a feasible business model.

The event is aimed at technicians, designers, marketing professionals and business developers and will be held entirely in English.


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-to-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.
