What is a Startup Weekend?

The official website describes Startup Weekend as: a series of 54-hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, and start up enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups!

What to expect:

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers.

Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation.

The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

So why attend a Startup Weekend?

1) Startup Weekends emphasize learning by creating. Rather than just relying on theory, you can test run aspects of your business here.

2) Networking! Startup Weekends are filled with people that could be future investors, collaborators, and customers.

3) During a startup weekend you can actually start your startup. 36% of startups that form over a Startup Weekend are still together 3 months after the event.
