Stockholm Startup Weekend: TRAVEL EDITION

Event starts at 6:00 pm
How could we solve the pains of a traveler or delight her with the use of different technologies?
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.
In our Startup Weekend Travel edition we are looking at how we can delight the traveler or solve her pains. There are endless opportunities to transform travel experience with emerging technologies. Here are a few of them that, we believe, will transform the future of travel industry:
- Connected devices
- Virtual/Augmented Reality
- Artificial intelligence
- Big Data for more personalized travel
Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
