About Techstars Startup Weekend: Techstars Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.

WHY SILVER SOCIETY?

Growing old is a fact of life. With the advent of high-quality healthcare and advanced medicine, people are living longer than ever. As the inverted population pyramid fast approaching, especially in developed economies, an aging society represents a unique set of challenges we all have to face, but it also means there are enormous opportunities in this "Silver Economy."


Startup Weekend Hong Kong Silver Society (Silver Economy & Aging Society) would like to focus on tackling the pressing needs of an aging society through new products and service innovations. It includes all the economic activities relevant to the needs of older adults, and the impact on many sectors. For example, health and nutrition, leisure and wellbeing, transport and housing, finance, public policy, education and employment.


ABOUT THE EVENT
In just 54 hours, participants will form teams, brainstorm, design a product, validate their business idea and pitch in front of experienced judges on Sunday evening. Throughout the weekend, there will be highs and lows, frustrations and moments of triumph. Some people will meet their co-founder at the event. Some teams will even move on to start a company after the event. Win or lose, we are certain that new lessons will be learned, ideas will be tested, limits will be pushed and lives will be changed forever.

To spice things up, we will be having a few special activities: party and warm up games on Friday night to break the ice and form your teams!! On Saturday, we will be inviting awesome mentors and coaches to interact with the teams, so please seek their advice and opinions! In the true spirit of Startup Weekend, we will be bringing in local startups, budding founders and cool companies to sponsor, showcase and network with you! Remember, Startup Weekend is a time for experiential learning, networking and building your personal brand!

Startup Weekend has a strong brand in Hong Kong. Globally, it has touched more than 1140 cities and its alumni consists of more than 480,000 entrepreneurs in 10 years.

It is for everyone, whether you are working corporate, building your own startup, having a career as a professional clown, a mechanic, a designer, coder or student, everyone can contribute in their own way. We are open to teams forming before the event, but we strongly recommend you to form your team on Friday night and work on an idea then. Startup Weekend is designed to embrace diversity, creating a safe and conducive environment for anyone to turn their concepts into companies! So give it a go, you'll never know what magic can happen over a weekend!
