What is a Startup Weekend?

Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs create a startup in 54 hours. Throughout the weekend, you’ll learn how to turn ideas into something real and experience what it’s like to startup.

What happens during Startup Weekend?

During Startup Weekend, you and your team will take your ideas from concept to creation within a matter of days!

Starting from day 1, participants will pitch their ideas to form teams, then hit the ground running. Throughout the weekend, you'll be meeting talented and passionate coaches from whom you can get advice, and you'll be provided all the nourishment to keep going.

At the end of day 3, your team will be pitching your idea to a panel of judges who will provide feedback and select the winner!

But Startup Weekend isn't about winning, it's about working on ideas and taking the first step of your entrepreneurial journey. Startup Weekend isn't a Hackathon or a Workshop. There won't be nicely packaged instructions for you to follow, but you will connect with like minded aspiring entrepreneurs.

Many startups have been formed from Startup Weekends and many have found their co-founders to go beyond startup weekend.

See below for a more detailed schedule.

Why Women?

we want to continue efforts in cultivating a wholly inclusive community.
A key component of that vision is empowering women to pursue their dreams and build tools that change the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring an idea?
Not at all. If you don't have an idea, you can join another idea and form a team to work on that one.

How should I bring my idea?
Each person will only have less than a minute so slides are no-go. You can bring props if you want though.

Do I get to work on my idea?
Not necessarily. At the end of day 1, everyone will be voting for ideas and the top ideas will get to form teams. If your idea doesn't get enough votes, you won't be able to form a team around them.

Can I bring an idea that I'm already working on?
No, but well researched and vetted ideas are always welcome.

What's included in the price?
Seven meals (from Friday night to Sunday evening), snacks, a place to work, and all the excitement we can provide. All the organizers, facilitators, coaches, and judges are volunteers and not being paid a cent, so please be nice to them :).

What if I am not available for the whole three days?
To get the full experience, it's best to be available for the whole three days, but in the past, we have had participants who had to miss couple hours because of prior engagements.

Can I sign up with my friend?
Of course. More the merrier.
