Startup Weekends are 54-hour (2.5 days) events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.

Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN startup methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.

The 3 winners will be incubated for at least 6 months and the top 2 will qualify for Global Startup Battle to compete with the Startup Weekend winners of other cities across the globe. Join us and come with your big idea that can complete at the global level! Only 100 tickets available!
