Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve
but don't know where to start?
Techstars Startup Weekend 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 and lots of ideas! 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. Remember, it’s all about forming the right team for your particular startup.
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, 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.Is entrepreneurial experience required?
Definitely not! We encourage people of any age, experience level or skill set to attend. Each year, we have participants ranging from zero startup knowledge all the way to participants who have founded startups in the past! Your fellow participants and our wonderful mentors will be there to help you with whatever you need.What if I have dietary requirements?
