Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur; the professional and personal challenge, highs and the lows, failures, and success?
All Techstars Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model, and this will be no different. Anyone is 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 co-founder, 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. Where participants are required to pitch their raw idea which could be in any vertical/theme like Technology, Education, Health, Disability, Environment, etc. and work on building a Minimum Viable Product MVP thus propelling them to take their idea to the next stage.
The current event is not a general SW edition, it’s focussed on IoT & Blockchain, so write some content around that. Why IoT & Blockchain, and you’re also looking for experts from this domain to participate, etc.
