Techstars Startup Weekend Budapest Online
9-11 April 2021

If you've ever been to a Techstars Startup Weekend, you know it's one of the most thrilling 54 hours you can imagine. You experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressures that make up life at a startup. As you work, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors and sponsors — all who are ready to help you refine your idea.

A Techstars Startup Weekend Online takes the best of our in-person experience and amplifies it with the scope and reach of the best digital tools available.
Learn, Network, Startup

Techstars Startup Weekend is coming to Budapest as an online event!

Bring an idea or offer your skills to help someone else's to kick-off. Form a team with like-minded innovators, receive feedback from experienced startup mentors, listen to no-fluff webinars on business models and presenting, and by the end of the 3-day event, you will have a pitch ready for the jury, and possibly an opportunity to launch your newly developed startup.

Techstars Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches, the event continues through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, culminating in Sunday night demos and presentations.

Hey people!

My name is Jojo. As the facilitator I'll guide you through the event. I got my first contact with SW back in November 2017 where it changed my life on the stop. My goal is to create the best SW experience for you.
