What is

Startup Weekend?

Startup Weekend is a 54-hour weekend event, during which groups of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more pitch ideas for new startup companies, form teams around those ideas, and work to develop a working prototype, demo, or presentation by Sunday evening.


Connect with people with rich and diverse talent, which is a Startup Weekend staple!


Leave knowing the next steps you need to take on your road to success.


Learn what it really takes to start a company. The only way to learn is the experience of trying.


It’s that simple. Techstars Startup Weekend is designed to get you going, FAST.
