Highlights from SWS 5-7 April

Startup Weekend Stavanger 2013 from Morten Gjerstad on Vimeo.

The next Startup Weekend Stavanger event is on 10th – 12th October 2014!

Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, teams and communities. Come share ideas, form teams, and launch startups. During the weekend you will learn the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams 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.

More details to be released soon, but we promise you great mentors to guide you in your work during the weekend, as well as new ideas, people and inspiration. Follow our facebook group for the latest updates.
