Special Women's Edition of Startup Weekend London

Startup Weekend is an international event in which participants have 54 hours to create a product prototype, in other words…a startup!

This particular Startup Weekend, taking place September 14-16 at Google Campus, London, will have a unique spin: a focus on connecting and showcasing the talents of women entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs (although men are also welcome to attend!). So apply!

The NextWomen's very own UK Editor Maila Reeves will be mentoring and judging at the event. Click here to register to participate at a special discounted rate.

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 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011.

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.
