Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur?

The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success?

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 1800 past events in 120 countries around the world in 2014.

The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 200 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

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) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

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!

54 小時可以做甚麼?? 在 Startup Weekend 裡,54 小時之後你可能就成立了一間公司,或是與你命中注定的創業夥伴相識,或是遇見從此改變了你創業生涯的投資者!

去年Startup Weekend 從美國來到台灣,目前已在台北辦了兩場,新竹辦了一場,高雄辦了一場,接下來將會在10月5日- 10月7日國立清華大學盛大登場,不論你是擁有產品或服務創意的創業家、會程式與網站設計的工程人員、還是有著商業財經背景,對創業有著熱情的人,都有機會在 Startup Weekend Hsinchu裡實現你的任何創業夢想。

曾經在美國地區促成 Zaarly、Zazu、Foodspotting、YOTPO 等成功服務的 Startup Weekend,在Startup Weekend Taipei、Startup Weekend HsinchuStartup Weekend Kaohsiung都展現活絡的創業生命力和成果。Startup Weekend Hsinchu 中你將有機會宣傳你的創意、認識可能的創業夥伴、以及尋找可能的資金投注,還可以從 Startup Weekend Hsinchu 所邀請來的 mentor中 ,獲得寶貴創業建議。

黏在牆上的地獄拉麵(MVP)- 新竹Startup Weekend Take Away

by swhsinchu

本文來自好險有科技的blog ~ 謝謝你的分享!! 裝熟這個週末都在新竹交通大學跟著這次Startup Weekend見習,拉咧。以前我對Startup Weekend還有點懷疑,天啊,一個週末能做啥阿?玩具車嗎? 這次見習後的結果證明,Startup Weekend是真實Startup過程殘酷的縮影,而且非常多人都過不了關。 Startup Weekend 使用的方法是本著 Lean Startup 的精神,測試市場:把一盤義大利麵丟向牆壁,看看什麼會黏在上面!來進行嚴酷的考驗的。 一開始主持人David就不斷地強調MVP = Minimum Viable Product (最基本的有效產品),翻成白話文,也就是『能夠營利的情況下,成本最低,能夠最快建立的產品原形』。 […]

Startup Weekend Hsinchu 參加感想

by swhsinchu

本文章來自Indiana Zhao的blog. 我首先要感謝 Startup Weekend Hsinchu 的全體工作人員,謝謝你們大家這幾天的辛勞,讓這個活動進行得這樣順利!謝謝你們把這麼棒的活動帶到新竹,真的是非常感謝! 活動雖然只有短短 54 小時,但收穫實在是太豐富了!整個過程我的心情更是高低起伏、五味雜陳~ 從活動開始前一天,我就興奮異常地期待週五晚上的到來!尤其當天下午在 Google ADL 拿到 HTC Flyer,更是把我的心情推向高點… 我一開始就鎖定參加的目的,是幫我在 AppUniverz 進行的專案 EzQueue,找到適合的合作夥伴,卻沒把獲得 VC 青睞當成是首要目標(事實上,我沒有事先好好研究 VC 的陣容,是我犯下的錯誤之一)。我對我的 pitch […]
