Impact Hub Bern
Hey! Yes, you!
Or even better: you’ve already got a brilliant idea but, alas, you’re still looking for the right people to join your team – people like you are most welcome, too!
Or do you just happen to be one of those people who always tend to think out of the box? Who’ve got a whole new approach to something that’s already out there?
We at Startup Weekend are convinced that brilliant, creative and active people with different backgrounds can achieve humongous great work! Participate in Startup Weekend Bern 2016 and you’ll see for yourself what the outcome will be when a bunch of people work on their projects for 54 hours.
And now that you’ve come so far with reading this text, you surely start wondering “errrm… this fits my profile but who exactly are they looking for? Are my skills sufficient and do I bring what they’re looking for?” – Well, lucky you, it doesn’t even matter whether you’ve got a technical or non-technical background.
Just try it out for yourself, show a little courage, buy your ticket now and become part of an unforgettable experience!
We’re looking forward to seeing you there.

Coaches and Mentors
Well, it’s really paid off: Today, two years later, they’re still on the market and growing. Appentura offers personal surprises: The recipient of the surprise has no clue where his adventure will take him – via smartphone he’s lead through his journey until eventually, all is revealed.
We have talked with Stefan about why he’s so motivated to coach some of you at Startup Weekend. His response is that of a true Startup Weekender: Many times, Stefan benefits from other entrepreneur’s valuable advices. That’s why he’d like to give something back to the community, as he knows exactly what it’s like to be in your position and considers this cycle (receiving advice and giving back to others) as incredibly important.
As a former participant, Stefan’s able to provide you with first-hand experience and is eager to get to know you and your ideas. His expertise encompasses the development of digital business models, validation of ideas, building up of a scalable startup from scratch – and of course – how to successfully pitch your business (idea).
Stefan’s personal message to you guys: “I’m not kidding: SUW truly changed my life :-) This is why I love to give something back whenever I can. I’m really looking forward to Startup Weekend!”
