About Techstars Startup Weekend
Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event starting on a Friday evening with anyone pitching a startup idea. The crowd of 100 or so attendees (a mix of hackers, creative and business people) then vote on the best pitches. About 15 teams are formed around the best ideas which then work through to Sunday evening. The best startups are awarded prizes ranging from cash to in‐kind support from companies. The event is open to anyone interested in the local entrepreneurial community, and it puts them in a setting where anything is possible.
In the past 3 years, 500+ startups have started & 15,000+ entrepreneurs have been inspired. Teams have even started to generate revenue during the 54hr event, and others have even gone on to raise funds from Business Angels or Venture Capitalists. None of these numbers take into account the networking, on‐going professional relationships, and amazing experience that take place at every event. Startup Weekend’s motto: Build Community. Start Companies. No Talk. All Action.
