Event Details

50 Latinx led ventures across 5 cities in 54 hours 1 weekend... let's do this!

Did you know that the Latinx community is the second largest ethnic group in America made up of 52 million people? By 2060, over a quarter of the entire U.S. population will be Latinx - that’s about 119MM people and over a trillion dollar market that remains untapped - until now!

Join us for the 1st ever national Startup Weekend Latinx in Tech!  We’re bringing 500 Latinxs and allies together for 54 hours in 5 cities - Oakland, LA, Chicago, Miami and New York - to ideate and design tech solutions to the problems affecting the Latinx community. Participants will be mentored by some of the brightest minds in tech, business, and development. Attendees not required to be of Latinx descent- this is an inclusive event to all! 

Lots of great prizes to be announced such as fast-track admission into POSiBLE’s accelerator program!

We are also offering scholarships to help make this event accessible. Apply here for scholarships.

Up for the challenge to make history?  Let's go!!! 

Special thanks to our amazing judges from Emerson Collective, CrossCulture Ventures and TenOneTen Ventures:
