Welcome!
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.

All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.

Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

FAQ
Is this event for me?
If you are interested in entrepreneurship the answer is most likely yes. Whether you are a serial entrepreneur or new to the startup scene, you'll fit right in as long as you are motivated to build a product or startup and open to new ideas. We believe that great ideas can come from anywhere.

The event is intended to be a collaborative and inclusive forum for sharing, learning, building,

and having fun. We expect each member of the startup community to be inclusive of all people and their ideas at Techstars Startup Weekend and we welcome all, regardless of experience, industry or background.


Do I have to participate in all three days?
Apart from the organizing team, mentors, speakers, event volunteers and judges, everyone who participates in the event is expected to participate in all three days. This is important not only to preserve your own learning experience, but also to minimize distractions or disruptions for the team you choose to join. We welcome any friends, family or colleagues you would like to invite to watch your final presentation to see all you have accomplished in just one weekend. Please check the registration page of your city's website or reach out to the event organizer for availability.
How do I register?
Every Techstars Startup Weekend event has a corresponding website with a registration page. Please see our events page at startupweekend.org/events for a complete list of upcoming events. There are typically different types of tickets for different skill sets, like 'Business', 'Designer', 'Technical' or 'Enthusiast' for example. Organizing teams sometimes track this to ensure they do outreach to a diverse group with a range of participant backgrounds and skill sets in order to maximize the event's value for each participant by ensuring the team's effectiveness. You can choose the ticket type closest to what your experience is - don't worry if nothing precisely matches your background!
Do I need a team?
Everyone who attends the event as an attendee is expected to come to the event without a team and then join and participate on a team at the event. This is important to preserve the Techstars Startup Weekend educational experience. The ideal team consists of members with diverse backgrounds and experience who share knowledge to build a great minimum viable product (MVP) using the Lean Canvas. The more people you have on your team to help you do market research and business model development, the quicker you'll develop an MVP to pitch on Sunday.
What ticket type should I purchase to pitch an idea?
Pitching is open to every participant! We recommend you purchase the ticket that best represents your skill set.
