The Startup Weekend event is a popular movement based mainly in Seattle but promotes seminars in startup ventures all over the world.
Assistance is provided to individuals and groups of people in bringing their business concepts to life through sessions and workshops for understanding different aspects of entrepreneurship. Startup Weekend is a not-for-profit organisation that works on a simple model which includes participants pitching in ideas and getting feedback from their peers with teams forming over the more popular ideas.
After the selection of best ideas, teams are formed where the participants have to present a business model in a 54 hour time period. They need to code scripts, design prototypes, give market authentication and present their concepts to a jury of local entrepreneurial leaders who then judge the teams with a last line of critical feedback.
The event encourages members to build businesses, find suitable associates for their ideas or even just learn a great deal from watching others at work, as there is something for everyone at this event.
It is the largest community of zealous entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries around the world. The winners will receive valuable prizes, donated by the sponsors of the event.
