Startup Weekend is Summer Camp meets Shark Tank.
Startup Weekend is the world’s connection point for entrepreneurs. You might meet a friend, a mentor, a co-founder, an investor or even your next boss.
The weekend-long event provides hands-on experiences where seasoned and aspiring entrepreneurs come together to share ideas, form teams, create an MVP, and pitch the concept to a panel of distinguished judges at the end of 54-hours. Participants will learn how to launch a business, a product or service while they: explore their creativity, experience what it’s like to create a business plan, learn how to pitch, and build an amazing network!
OUR MISSION is to provide a safe place for entrepreneurs to grow in all aspects of their journey – from college students, professors, early/mid career to CEOs all participate. Powered by Google for Entrepreneurs and Techstars, Startup Weekend is a global, grassroots movement of passionate entrepreneurs with a mission to inspire, educate, and empower others to launch innovative ideas. It is the largest community of entrepreneurs in the world and has hosted more than 4,000 events in more than 200 countries since 2007.
