The Leeming Building
Startup Weekend comes back to LEEDS. Pitch ideas, build a team and launch your dream product in only 54 hours! No talk, ALL ACTION!
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 or who to start with?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, CEOs and investors, 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. Remember, it’s all about the team.
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 from our coaches, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely!
Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
TechStars Startup Weekend Leeds 2018 is a full weekend-long experience. Your ticket includes:
- 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
- Benefits and discounts from our global partners (i.e. free domain and $300 for the Google Cloud Platform)
- One-on-one time with amazing mentors
- A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
