Your idea in 54 hours

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, 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, 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.

Hope Sadahiro
Startup Weekend Team

From the multiple programs I have been in, I have learned the importance of collaboration. This lesson has also shown me that when working in a team there are many types of people you will meet. Learning how to achieve a goal together is significant to the success of the project. Teamwork is a skill I have, although I also know that my personal contributions will have to be up to par. I will work hard to participate and learn from each experience.


Martin Cabatic
Student Coordinator @ The Fred Kiesner Center for Entrepreneurship

After 5+ years of leadership roles in my community, I've cultivated my work ethic to be versatile, constantly being able to adapt to situations and learn. I enjoy actively working with a team and optimizing every individual's talents to achieve our goals. Through several projects, I learned that success comes after a team has developed their skills both individually and as a unit. I believe that I am an efficient worker who cares greatly for team chemistry. I am excited to work, learn, and be inspired by a team of talented, motivated individuals.
