Available to students, graduates and members of the general public, the Techstars Startup Weekends are the place to meet like-minded, entrepreneurial individuals and be immersed in a weekend of creativity and collaboration. The most recent event involved around 50 participants, which included industry coaches, judges and the attendees themselves. It resulted in seven teams working full-time over the course of the weekend to build a start-up from scratch. With just 54 hours, Friday saw participants pitching ideas, before voting on which ones to take forward and forming teams to work together over the weekend.
Two full days followed, with teams living and breathing their startup ideas as they worked together, ate together and received fantastic support from expert coaches. The weekend culminated in teams presenting their businesses to a panel of judges on Sunday, before the awards were given and everyone celebrated with a final meal and drink together.
These events are designed to help support and encourage budding entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs or anyone with exciting ideas for new products, processes, services or experiences. For those that do not have an idea to pitch, startup weekends are still a great opportunity to learn more about what goes into building a startup and making your ideas a reality.
