Are you studying hard to get your degree, worrying about grades and exams, but have you ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur? The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success?

  • Are you an expert in business or/and communication but you don’t have a team to share your abilities?
  • Do you have an entrepreneurial idea but you need a developer?
  • Are you a code geek but your public skills are not the best?

Don’t worry. Startup Weekend University gives you the chance to mix up with people from different backgrounds but with the same goal: to develop an innovative idea to a feasible start up.

If you have a idea you can find a team to support it, if you don’t you can join an other team and be part of their vision.

Teams will be formed on the spot!

Startup Weekend University gives you the chance to mix up with people from different backgrounds but with the same goal: to develop an innovative idea to a feasible start up.

Startup Weekend University is part of Startup Weekend, a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011.

The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 200 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

Startup Weekend University will follow the same basic model of all Startup Weekend events: students are welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.
