Startup Weekend Groningen
Startup Weekend is an event where you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. In no more than 54 hours, you can pitch your ideas, form teams and turn that idea into a business! Throughout the weekend, developers, designers, business and industry experts will come together to learn what it takes to start a company and learn about entrepreneurship in a hands-on way. As you learn how to create a real company, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors, co founders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.
On Friday, all participants arrive at Het Kwadraat, the location of Startup Weekend 2018. There will be time for everybody to get to know each other and eat dinner. After that, there will be 60-second pitches and teams will form around the most popular ideas. Remember: it is not required to pitch, but we’ll definitely encourage you to do so!
On Saturday, teams will work on their ideas. Groups will go out to validate their ideas, build prototypes and define their business model. There will also be feedback moments by our experienced coaches.
On Sunday, teams will have time to work until mid-afternoon. After that, there will be time to wrap up your prototype, practise your presentation and have dinner. In the evening, all teams will present their work and receive valuable feedback from a panel of judges. The winning teams will be provided with prizes to help launch their company.
Why should you join?
Startup Weekend is perfect for all the people out here that have a great idea, for those who wonder what it would take to be an entrepreneur or for people that just want to learn more about startups. Participating is also a great way to expand your network and learn new skills.
