Have an Innovative Idea? Join Stamford Innovation Start Up Weekend (9/25-9/27)

Join the Virtual Startup Weekend and create a company in 3 days!

Techstars Startup Weekend is the best place to come and test your idea or join others to work on theirs. Startup Weekend is hosted by Sacred Heart University as part of Stamford Innovation Week and will take place Friday, September 25th, 5:00 PM – Sunday, September 27th, 6:00 PM. Over the weekend, you’ll build a team, work through spinning-up your product with amazing mentors, and put together an “MVP” (Minimum Viable Product) to present on Sunday. So, whether it’s a physical product or the next software startup, come meet like-minded entrepreneurs and become change agents in Connecticut. Registration is free but seats are limited!

Startup Weekend is a full weekend-long experience. Participation includes:

  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
  • One-on-one time with amazing industry mentors
  • A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager (like you!) to make a change!

Techstars Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.

Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
