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
Startup Weekend Education (SWEDU) is an action-oriented weekend designed to take you from idea to startup in just 54 hours. At SWEDU happening across the country, educators, business professionals, and hackers conceptualize and build viable products, services, and school models that solve education’s most pressing problems. SWEDU participants pitch their idea to other attendees, then form teams that will work for two days building a prototype and business model to pitch to a panel of judges on Sunday. SWEDU brings educators into the process of solving problems they face firsthand, integrating their perspective into solutions at conception.
Everyone is welcome and no previous entrepreneurial experience is required!
