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?
