Your idea in 54 hours
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.

Editor & Publisher 25 under 35.
Spent the first part of my career supporting storytelling through news media. Now, I am gearing up to tell a new story through e-commerce and experiential retail.
A Latin Americanist, I've written about and studied U.S. national security issues with an emphasis on that region. I have a master's in security policy with a focus insurgencies, counterinsurgency, organized crime, and Latin American security. My thesis presented programs and strategies to prevent the radicalization of second-generation immigrant youths in the U.S. in order to mitigate national security risks.
Philly is my home. I co-founded Philly Set Go, Philadelphia’s first millennial PAC––an organization advocating for, engaging, and supporting millennials and their interests at the local and state level. Additionally, I'm on the Board of Overseers of Einstein Healthcare Network, one of Philadelphia's leading healthcare networks, and the Board of Directors of Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY).
