Startup Weekend has grown into an organization with a global presence. As of December 2016, Startup Weekend has reached 135 countries, involving over 210,000 entrepreneurs. Startup Weekend is a Techstars Startup Program and is powered by Google for Entrepreneurs.
You’ve been described as “…the most connected, educated and sophisticated generation in history,” “millennials on steroids” and the “igeneration.”
This Startup Weekend is completely for you. Engage, connect, collaborate, compete and CELEBRATE! Meet new people with ideas, creativity and the drive to make something happen. Come with your own idea OR with the desire to be part of a team that turns an idea into a real business in just three days!
Learn what it really takes to start a company. No book, panel, speaker, or blog post will teach you what you need to know. The only way to learn is the experience of trying.
Social Researcher Mark McCrindle writes, “they (Generation Z) don’t just represent the future, they are creating it.”
