About Startup Weekend

Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.


Startup Weekends take place in countries all around the world supported by a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, teams and communities.


Startup Weekend: Frequently Asked Questions



About Startup Weekend EDU

Startup Weekend EDU is an education-focussed Startup Weekend. It’s almost exactly like a traditional Startup Weekend, but with a few tweaks. All of the pitches on Friday and companies demoed on Sunday will be designed to solve problems in the education space, broadly defined–not restricted to K-12 or other “formal” education. EDU events add crucial participant categories: educator and student. Who better to speak about problems in education than teachers, administrators and students?

Organizer

Startup Weekend

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over a thousand past events in 110+ countries around the world.

The non-profit organization is located in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
