Can you really start a business in 54 hours?
You CAN at Startup Weekend! Take Your Idea and Launch Your Business in a Weekend!Techstars Startup Weekend is the place for startup enthusiasts, innovators, designers, developers, marketers and creatives to come together in one weekend to pitch, create and launch a business.This 54-hour event is dedicated to fostering new business ideas while strengthening the Fort Worth entrepreneurial community. The real value comes in working with incredibly driven and creative individuals to take an idea from concept to execution using lean tactics in a high pressure environment.
Why YOU should participate? YOU are a skilled developer, designer, marketer or possess business or startup know-how...or you have a great idea that you want to turn into a business. No business is built by itself and startup's are more successful when they are supported by a team of experts with varied skills or lead by a visionary with great ideas. This is YOUR chance to be a part of something that can make a major difference in your life of the lives of others. YOU are needed.
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, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
Your full weekend experience 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
- A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
- All the internet and coffee you can consume.
