Are you ready for the first “Startup Weekend Sustainability” in Greece?
“If you want creativity, take a zero off your budget. If you want sustainability, take off two zeros.” Jaime Lerner
Following the Spirit of Sustainability, more and more organizations and companies have been reaching out to their customers, suppliers and communities to work jointly on issues of sustainability, environmental responsibility, ethics, social inclusion and compliance. Along this path, it’s a great pleasure to introduce the first Athens Startup Weekend Sustainability to the Greek startup ecosystem.
Athens Startup Weekend Sustainability will take place between May 9, 10, and 11.
People from different backgrounds will come together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams and start their own sustainable company with the help of experienced mentors.
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 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011.
What do you think of yet another journey?
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). Teams with members from different background form.
On Saturday the frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation starts
Teams work all day on their projects and our amazing mentors drop by to give them valuable feedback.
On Sunday teams wrap up their efforts and by 5 o' clock they give their final pitches of their weekend projects. Judges question and choose the best...
and then we party!
