It gives young entrepreneurs the opportunity to work on their idea, be trained by mentors and market people, work with other people who share common interests, evaluate their idea by experienced professionals and finally create their own startup.
The Startup Weekend begins in Friday afternoon with initial ideas presentation and group formation, continues at intensive rhythms during the weekend with brainstorming and developing business canvases to finish on Sunday night with group presentations to be evaluated by the judges in terms of the final original product or service, viability of the business plan and innovation. Throughout the event, all mentors stay supportive to the teams to guide them and solve any problem. The winners win prizes-services that give them the opportunity to showcase their idea at national and international level.
