Techstars Startup Weekend Santa Monica 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.
Big shoutout to Los Angeles Tech.
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 local to the LA area and from around the country. 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. Hopefully solving a problem that affects Santa Monica or all of LA. 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.
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
- A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
- All the internet and coffee you can consume.
Still have questions, feel free to reach us at “firstname.lastname@example.org”. We are all local volunteers.
Don’t wait any longer and join the Santa Monica Techstars Startup Weekend movement!
No talk, all action!
