What is it?
Techstars Startup Weekends are 28-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Saturday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with other entrepreneurs.
The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable insight from local entrepreneurs. Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first step toward launching your own startup.
If you don’t have an idea, but the thought of working on a team with a new idea for an immersive weekend experience is intriguing, Techstars Startup Weekend is for you, too.
