Have you ever heard the phrase ”Entrepreneurship is like a journey”?
Truth is, that a single journey is never enough. Last year we experienced a unique adventure during the first Athens Startup Weekend University. And we just want more!
The second Athens Startup Weekend University will take place on October 18-19-20. Students from different backgrounds will come together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies 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 130 countries around the world.
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 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!
