Did you know that the Latinx community is the second largest ethnic group in America made up of 56 million people? By 2060, over a quarter of the entire U.S. population will be Latinx - that’s about 119MM people and over a trillion dollar market that remains untapped - until now!
Join us for the third annual Startup Weekend in Oakland as we bring 100 Latinxs and allies to ideate and design tech solutions to the problems affecting our communities. Participants will be mentored by some of the brightest minds in tech, business, and development.

What is Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour weekend event, during which groups of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more pitch ideas for new startup companies, form teams around those ideas, and work to develop a working prototype, demo, or presentation by Sunday evening. Within the weekend you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.Startup Weekend has grown into an organization with a global presence. As of December 2019, Startup Weekend has reached 153 countries, involving over 200,000 entrepreneurs.
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.
What does your ticket include?
- 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
