About Startup Weekend

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning together the tricks and hacks of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1000 past events in 120 countries around the world. Anyone is welcome to pitch an idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas organically; don’t worry though if you don’t have an idea yourself, just join the group you like best! Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a co-founder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
