The sky is the limit... actually not in this event! Join us to learn how to launch a space startup over a weekend.
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 makes this a Startup Weekend Space?
During the weekend the teams will work on ideas related to space problems. For example (but by far not limited to), spacecraft launching and landing, software solutions, human survival in Mars or deep space, communications, prospecting, satellites and their applications on earth, education, etc. What would make it really special is the group of mentors we will have to help teams figure out the different aspects of a space business.
Please read our FAQs below or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with ANY question you might have. We acknowledge this event might bring up a lot of questions and maybe even feel a little intimidating if you don't have a tech background or a space idea, so we want to make sure we address any question or hesitation that comes up.
It is going to be a great opportunity for you to learn about the local and global space industries and to meet really awesome and interesting people.
How does Startup Weekend Work?
On Friday night, you'll pitch your own idea or listen to others (see the FAQs below), 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.
Then, 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!
Techstars Startup Weekend 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
- One-on-one time with amazing mentors
