You have an idea you’d like to pursue or a problem you’d like to solve but don’t know where to start or who to start with? You don’t have an idea (yet) but you do want to join a team to contribute with your experience and knowledge? Awesome! This Online Startup Weekend is the perfect opportunity to join a team, validate your idea, create a prototype and receive feedback from experienced mentors, e.g. entrepreneurs as well as tech and business experts.
Tickets to the event are FREE for everyone, please register via the Eventbrite link. Participants and partners can make a donation though. All collected funds, globally, will be donated to a charity organisation selected by Techstars, fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please note: In true Startup Weekend spirit, the ideas you submit should not be existing businesses but new projects. They can but do not necessarily be directly related the current COVID-19 situation. Find more answers to your potential questions in our Attendee FAQ.
