When you sign up for Startup Weekend, you start to dream. When you’re in the thick of building a business in a weekend, you start to believe the dream could become a reality. If you keep at it years later, the dream will become a reality.

It all starts during Friday night pitches. The days and months leading up to Startup Weekend are exciting and a bit nerve-racking. What if… is a question that comes to mind often. What if no one likes my idea? What if I don’t get along with my team? What if we lose?

Here are a few more possibilities: What if we win? What if I love my team? What if this event changes everything for me?

These are extreme examples, and the team of Startup Weekend Pittsburgh: Women's Edition organizers have experienced the highs and lows of Startup Weekend. It’s an all-encompassing event built on teamwork, competition, and dreams. If you’ve ever wanted to take the leap to start a company, we're here to dream with you. It starts with a pitch.
