Startup Weekend is a non-profit event, so what does your ticket fee pay for?
Food: this is actually a big deal. We provide 7 meals over the course of a Startup Weekend as well as snacks throughout to keep you fuelled. And we get you good quality, local food too!
Sustainability: 50% of any profit after event costs gets reinvested back into Startup Weekend to continue to develop new and existing programmes that benefit the global entrepreneurship community.
Community Chest: Startup Weekend is a global organisation and events take place all over the world, but in cities in developing countries where the entrepreneurial community is just getting started and sponsorship is scarce, volunteer organisers sometimes need a helping hand financially. So, 50% of the profits after event costs get dedicated to a Community Chest. By paying for your Startup Weekend Sheffield ticket, you are actively helping to grow entrpreneurial communities all over the world and becoming part of that global network. And that's just one of the reasons why you're awesome!
Refund Policy: No refunds will be granted within 7 days of the event if food and drink have already been ordered. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
About Startup Weekend: Startup Weekends are 54-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, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
