No Talk, All Action. Launch a Start-up in one weekend.
- You have an idea and are looking for talented team members?
- You've got talent and want to contribute to implement an idea?
- You want to learn how an idea turns into a business model?
Zürich Startup Weekend (SWZurich) follows a basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch a startup idea and receive feedback from peers. Teams organically form around top ideas, as determined by popular vote. Each team has 54 hours to create a business model, code, design, and determine market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations of top ideas to entrepreneurial leaders.
At the Startup Weekend Zurich you can meet participants from all fields. During the weekend you will develop your ideas into business models. You will have access to inspiring coaches and top-notch startup experts who will support you. In the end you will present your business models to the jury, who will give you feedback and choose the best business models.
Included in the event price are all presentations, food and all drinks. In addition all participants will receive an attractive package of vouchers and services which are useful for every startup. Event language is English.
