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. In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors, cofounders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started. Yes, the hardest part of starting up is starting out. At Techstars Startup Weekend, you'll be immersed in the ideal environment for startup magic to happen.

Surrounded by smart, passionate people and with the best tools and approaches at your disposal, you’ll take giant leaps toward creating a business, becoming a founder, and connecting with the right people and resources. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical or design backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.


Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.


Get ready for 54 hours of fitness, design, and entrepreneurship. Design mentors and experienced entrepreneurs will be available to mentor you and your team as you develop brand new startup ideas and business plans. Teams will get tons of cool event swag (t-shirts, stickers, books, and other giveaways) and they will be competing for prizes including: 2017 Big Design Conference Passes and NoD Coworking 3-Month Memberships.
