Description

Some of the topics covered are: health, waste management, education, social, mobility, access to energy, technology and much more.

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

Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.

For all event details, list with menttors and jury - check out our website!

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. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. 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, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

About Startup Weekend

Startup Weekend are weekend events where startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups! With over 1.600 events in over 700 cities and 120 countries, Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals and teams to found successful startups. There have been 31 events in Belgium gathering 2000+ participants so far.
With 15 events every weekend in the world, this is biggest catalyst of entrepreneurship powered by Techstars community.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: on Friday evening, you are invited to present your best idea and inspire others to join your team. Of course you don’t have to present your own idea. You may not be the next Elon Musk but you certainly possess valuable skills that other teams will be in need of. Once teams have been formed around the most convincing ideas, you will focus on business model creation, product designing, prototyping, coding and market validation.

Throughout the weekend, the teams will be supported by mentors and coaches, who are experts in their fields. The weekend culminates on Sunday evening with presentations in front of a top-class jury composed of entrepreneurial leaders and Changemakers. This is another opportunity for critical feedback.

Winners will receive awesome awards along with prizes such as free design resources, free access to software, a spot in an incubator program to boost their startup and a space in a co-working place.

The event will be held in English.

The venue is quite central so there will be a lot of hostel options around too. Check out www.hostelsclub.com and www.hostelworld.com for hostel options, and www.airbnb.com for apartments.

If you have any questions or are interested in sponsoring the event, shoot us a message at brussels@startupweekend.org. We can’t wait to meet you all there!
