Day 1: Meet, Pitch & Team Up
Day 2: Learn & Work
Day 3: Present Your Work & Celebrate!

Beginning with Friday night, women pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas followed by a 54-hour of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders providing another opportunity for critical feedback before a final winning team is chosen


Techstars Startup Weekend is a concept created in USA and expanded all around the world. Participants pitch new business ideas, form teams around those ideas and work on them during the weekend. The goal is to develop a working prototype, demo, or a presentation by Sunday evening.


You! If you are a creative woman, with a new business idea and are willing to put in the work required for it to grow, then this is for you. If you want to help, you have skills but don’t know what to do with them, then this is also for you.

*The event is aimed at female participants, however, men are welcome to participate!
