Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur?
The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success?
Startup Weekend is 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 1800 past events in 120 countries around the world in 2014.
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.
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: 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 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. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
What is Startup Weekend Education?
Entrepreneurship and Education, Bangalore connects the dots on 29th August 2014
This August, we are bringing together a 100 innovators, entrepreneurs and educators together for some creative chaos! This is the first Startup Weekend Education event to be held in Bangalore, giving local educators, designers, developers and entrepreneurs the opportunity to solve problems and gaps that are experienced by us everyday.
Educators and teachers often closely encounter challenges that vary from curriculum design, teaching methodologies, use of technology, logistical & operational challenges, infrastructure, child safety and managing communication & relationships with different stakeholders. The opportunity to bring together innovators, business thinkers, teachers, professors, artists, designers, non-profits and technology enthusiasts on a common platform creates an incredible chance for dialogues and solutions that can creatively and meaningfully solve challenges we currently encounter in education systems.
If you are passionate about the education sector and have an idea that can solve a problem or improve an existing solution for India’s education sector, The Startup Education Event is for you!
Join us from 29th to 31st Aug, for 54 hours of creative chaos that is not just fun but will potentially turn your idea into a viable business model.
