About Startup Weekend

Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur? The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the successes?

Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event which brings together people with skill sets – from software developers and designers, to marketers and business people – to build applications and develop a credible business around them.

Whether you launch a successful startup, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside your usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave Startup Weekend better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. For all event details, visit
