Startup Weekend provides weekend events where participants come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups. Startup Weekend recruits highly motivated developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more to attend the weekend events that build communities, companies and projects.
The participants that attend a Startup Weekend event decide what they want to tackle over the weekend and come out at the end with several developed companies or projects. At the weekend event attendees pitch their ideas to attract a team to launch their company or product. Over the course of the weekend teams work to develop their idea, which they will present to a panel of judges and the top ideas can possibly receive prizes or funding. Startup weekend provides 5-7 meals and drinks, brings in guest speakers and thought leaders, and helps facilitate mentorship for attendees by community experts in various fields.
