Description

What is Startup Weekend?

Have you ever seen a new product, app, or business and thought to yourself, "that was my idea a few years ago"? If you have, that means you did not have a process for taking that idea from concept to creation.

Startup Weekend is your chance to learn how to put your idea into action within a matter of days! Whether you are looking to...

  • get introduced to the world of startups and entrepreneurship
  • learn the process for going from concept to creation
  • meet experienced, talented, and passionate entrepreneurs in NYC
  • join or build an all-star team
  • make meaningful connections and become part of a global community
  • learn and practice new skills to take back to your job or beef up your resume

To get a feel for the event, check out our awesome wrap-up video from Startup Weekend Music Tech edition! Many thanks to our amazing sponsor, Sony Music, for putting this together for us!

Do I need to come with an idea?

The weekend is all about learning about the startup ideation process and learning from each other. If you have more questions, check out the Startup Weekend First Timers FAQ!
