Techstars Startup Weekend Twin Cities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour experience, providing entrepreneurs a unique experience to create a company, product or service over the weekend.

Individuals will pitch their ideas Friday night and form teams with other attendees. Wrapping up on Sunday, they’ll pitch their prototype app, website, product or service to a panel of startup judges.

Startup Weekend Twin Cities was first held in 2010. Alumni who got their start at SWTC have generated millions in revenue, reached customers in every country in the world, raised millions of investor funding, surpassed Kickstarter goals, and have even been acquired. Those who attend should come with an idea, nothing more.

Do not bring your existing startup to the event. Don’t have an idea for a new business? No problem! Come to join another team and experience the thrill of launching an idea into a real business. At the end of the weekend, some teams will continue and create a profitable business. Others will disband and walk away with tremendous learning. All should expect to make valuable connections with other entrepreneurs, experts and mentors who can help them in their future careers.

Come prepared to write code, prototype product, design logos, develop a brand, prepare marketing, and plan revenue.

This year, SWTC will be a combined event with two tracks, adult professionals and students. Check out the youth event here.
