About Startup Weekend: Athens Startup Weekend University is a 54-hour event exclusively for University students, where participants pitch ideas for new startup companies, form teams around those ideas, and work to develop a working prototype in only two days.
Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. During the event, participants have the chance to effectively turn their ideas into reality by collaborating with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams are connected with mentors and experts from the local entrepreneurship community in order to aid them in the process of building a sustainable company. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.
Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Athens Startup Weekend University is the perfect environment to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
