No Talk, All Action. Launch a Startup in 54 Hours!

Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve related to environmental sustainability but don't know where to start or who to start with?

Whether you have an idea or not - Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team or join a team. You will create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend! The last decade, we’ve organized more than 4,000 in over 150 countries, consolidating Startup Weekend as the biggest incubator for the world!

In Just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that makeup life at the startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.

An event open for all ages, experience levels and backgrounds, of motivated people with ideas or willing to join other teams and improve the sustainability of their communities and the world. If you’re looking for a team, co-founder, mentors or an idea to leave your mark in the world, Startup Weekend is the event for you.

Why a Startup Weekend on sustainability ?

Because environmental sustainability is one of the biggest challenges humanity is facing, it’s our duty to help entrepreneurs find the best solutions to overcome it.

The challenges of entrepreneurship in sustainability you can work in during this weekend are diverse:

  • Build eco-conceived products & reverse planned obsolescence
  • Upcycle
  • Substitute the disposable by the sustainable
  • Reduce food waste
  • Foster local production and local distribution
  • Build a sustainable agriculture and a sustainable food industry
  • Build highly energy efficient products and systems
  • Produce sustainable energy
  • (Re)Build sustainable buildings
  • Design resilient, smart and inclusive cities
  • Design Fintech for inclusive sustainable finance and markets
  • Build the future of sustainable transportation
  • Foster education on sustainability

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on and needs to be related with sustainability.

Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, build a viable business model and likely pivot your approach entirely!
