Your idea in 54 hours

Have you ever thought what can you achieve in only 54 hours?
With the right team, great ambition, a lot of energy, problem solving mindset and a lot of support from our mentors you can take your idea from childhood status to adulthood, all in one weekend. Techstars Startup Weekend makes this possible. Here is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs.

Willing to become a winner in this Global Startup Weekend initiative?

There will be more than 50 cities around the world doing a Startup Weekend focused on entrepreneurship in sustainability at the same time. Therefore, the stakes are high so be ready to jump into the global final contest together with other 50 local winners. That’s not the end of it! Special prizes will be awarded to 5 global winners and you can be one of them.

What will you be creating?

Pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. The problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental issues, etc. To make it challenging and fair, your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. In 54 hours, you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product that you will most likely iterate and pivot after getting feedback from our mentors who have valuable expertise within sustainability, entrepreneurship, business, etc. On top of that, you will get the chance to be seen by investors willing to invest in your idea.
If you have been waiting for the right time to become an entrepreneur and make your idea real, take action now. And as a reward for your courage and time, we will offer support and prizes that will take your idea to the next level. Come with friends, but get the full experience by participating in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team!

  • 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
