Startup Weekend Eindhoven

Startup Weekend, the successful entrepreneurs concept that has delivered more than 700 startups worldwide, is coming to the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven the Netherlands.

From 18 until 20 February entrepreneurial high-tech, web and mobile enthusiasts are invited to share their brilliant ideas. Over the weekend, everything is dedicated to innovative ideas.

Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event which focuses on going from a high tech, web or mobile business idea into a prototype, to market strategy or business case over the course of a weekend.

54-hour events where developers, coders, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and create startups!

Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiments where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. Most events have about 75 attendees, half of which have technical backgrounds and the other half have business backgrounds.

Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, individuals and teams are encouraged to bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams code, design, research, develop, create business plans while constantly streamlining their startup vision. Come Sunday evening—which always comes around way too soon—teams come together to watch each other’s demos, listen to judges’ feedback, and even win awesome prizes.

Startup Weekends are specifically designed for entrepreneurs looking for feedback on an idea, are interested in finding a co-founder, would like to learn a new skill, or would like to test the entrepreneurial waters by joining a team. Startup Weekends are risk-free environments where everyone is expected to roll up their sleeves and dive into the exhilarating world of startups.
