What is a Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekends are all about learning through the act of creating. This global grassroots movement of active and empowered community leaders and entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. Participants with varying specialties come together to share ideas, form teams and launch startups from the bottom up.

What’s different about this event?

This Startup Weekend is designed to engage more female entrepreneurs and provide them the necessary resources for long term success. The weekend will be a focused on empowering women within our community to lend their voice to innovation teams.

While we understand it takes a community of creative thinkers to help build an idea from concept through to execution, this event will be supporting women pitches only. In doing so, we ensure women are able to hone their creative and entrepreneurial talent in a safe environment that inspires risk taking and innovation with the help of the broader community of men and women ready to share their expertise to champion change and fuel new ideas. 

How does it work?
Techstars Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.  The concept is simple. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. No experience necessary - we teach you all you need to know!

Participants create working startups and base products during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.  Whether you are looking for feedback on a startup idea, to find a co-founder, find specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

Why should I participate?
Whether entrepreneurs find co-founders, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5 job, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. 

Don't wait another minute, buy your ticket today!
