Create your startup in 54 hours!
Techstars Startup Weekend Biel/Bienne 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. 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:
- 6 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.
Still have questions, feel free to reach us at email@example.com

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!”
