Come for free and learn! From beginners to pros learn from the best.

We know that during a Startup Weekend event there isn’t a lot of time to learn new things. You have an idea that you would like to work on at Startup Weekend and you do the best you can with the tools you have. But sometimes those tools aren’t enough, which is why we’re running this pre-Startup Weekend bootcamp.

Startup Weekend Event Organizers Trey Steinhoff and Allison Barkley will lead the session and cover a number of topics including:
  • The weekend schedule
  • How to best pitch your idea 
  • How to form an effective team for the weekend 
  • Hustlers, hackers, hipsters and makers?  What are they and why should I care? 
  • Startup weekend rules… there are a few!)
  • Startup weekend participant tools
  • Judging criteria
  • Brief overview of Global Startup Battle:
During the weekend prior to and following Global Entrepreneurship Week (Nov 17-23), hundreds of Startup Weekend events are hosted around the world and teams from each event can compete regionally or by theme with one another via a global video competition. In a 10 day period, there will be over 200 other Startup Weekends happening at the same time all over the world, and every team from those events will be eligible to compete in Global Startup Battle (GSB). The following are the tracks:

  • Champions Track - 
    Join a legacy of some of the all-time Startup Weekend greats as part of the Champions Track. 
  • Great in the Making - Made great by Mr. Coffee
    If you seek to make a difference (a great difference) in the lives of others, this is your track.

  • The Innovators - Powered by .CO
    Calling all Startup Weekend teams that are launching their brilliant ideas on a .CO domain!

  • Disruptors & Big Ideas - Powered By Transpose
    For the entrepreneurs setting out to change industries with visionary ideas.

  • Mobile Growth Track - Sponsored By Branch
    Calling all app developers and enthusiasts! Let Branch help you launch your next big idea!

  • Open Track - Sponsored By The Company Corporation
    A brand new way to compete! This Track is for teams who do not attend a GSB event and are in the early stages of launching their ideas.
