Event Details

Startup Weekend is joining forces with Steve Blank and Udacity to bring you some the world’s most effective experiential entrepreneurship curriculum - Steve’s Lean Launch Pad curriculum (as taught at Stanford, Berkley, and Columbia) - customized and packaged into a 3-week in-person follow-on course to Startup Weekend. 

Is NEXT Right for YOU?

Listen to what Eric Koester of Zaarly has to say. 

NEXT 3-week long, in-person course which provides real world, hands-on learning on what it’s like to actually start a scalable company. This is not a class about how to write a business plan. It’s not an exercise on how smart you are in a classroom, or how well you use the research library to size markets. And the end result is not a PowerPoint slide deck for a VC presentation. 

If you are an early-stage startup team looking for a structured program to help you build your business featuring an award-winning online curriculum mixed with in-person coaching and mentoring with a group of fellow entrepreneurs, then NEXT is for you.  The Barcelona course features leading entrepreneurs, investors and startuppers (details below) beginning on November 28th. Class times and details are below.

 

  • Wednesday, November 28, 2012 -- 18:00 - 21:00
  • Saturday, December 1, 2012 - 10:00 to 13:00
  • Wednesday, December 5, 2012 - 18:00 - 21:00
  • Saturday, December 8, 2012 - 10:00 to 13:00
  • Wednesday, December 12, 2012 - 18:00 - 21:00
  • Saturday, December 15, 2012 - 10:00 to 13:00

This is a practical class – essentially a lab, not a theory or “book” class - for teams of 2+ co-founders. Similar to Startup Weekend, NEXT creates an entrepreneurial experience with all of the pressures and demands of the real world in an early stage startup. Teams will be getting their hands dirty talking to customers, partners, competitors, as you encounter the chaos and uncertainty of how a customer-driven startup actually works - all aimed towards answering the question of how to turn a great idea into a great company. Co-founders will learn how practically apply business modelling to their company, and customer development to get out of the classroom to effectively test whether/how customers would use your product. 

NEXT takes a ‘flipped classroom’ style of learning, where teams are expected to watch lectures and complete assignments between classes, while classtime itself takes a Facilitator-driven approach to sharing learnings and questioning results.

You do not need to have attended a Startup Weekend event to attend this course. You must, however, be part of a team of at least two people working on a startup or startup idea.

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.
