No Talk, all action. Launch a startup in 54 hours!

Have a great idea? Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Want to learn more about startups or expand your professional network? Startup Weekend is the place for you!

What is Startup Weekend?

Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.  Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.  Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.  Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

Why should I join?

Expand your professional network, take your own idea from concept to creation, join / build the team, meet experienced, talented and passionate entrepreneurs, follow the latest startups, learn and practice new skills to take back to your job, find business partners or even clients. And of course have fun!

What do I get?

Full meal plan for the whole weekend, the most inspiring co-working place, life music performances, the best 30 minutes workshop with our pitching guru Davit Beckett, 2200+ bestselling nonfiction e-books by Blinkist, branded Startup Weekend t-shirs, bags and other goodies. 

Our delegated partners and guests include Accenture, StartupBootcamp, Rockstart, Foodora, Gemeente Utrecht and many more, thereby you have all the chances to expand your network!
