Do you love pitch competitions? Of course you do, you sick bastards.
We do too, but we’re tired of the same old, awesome ideas ruling the day. So we changed the way pitch competitions happen…well, at least the part where the good ideas always win.
Sign up to pitch your worst idea, or join us to see some hilariously bad attempts. Teams will pitch together and will be judged on both how bad their idea is AND how poorly it is presented.
Winner will receive a symbolic reward with an actual value approaching zero.
ALSO FREE BEER AND FOOD.
A note from the organizers. Anyone who went to SHREDX 2018 will tell you it was hands down the highlight of their year and we haven’t even hit the holiday season yet. SHREDX 2019 will definitely sell out. If you want to compete, sign up early.
YOU KNOW THE DRILL. YOU BEST COME INCORRECT!
Your idea in 54 hours
Do you have an idea you’d like to pursue or a problem you’d like to solve but don’t know where to start or who to start with?
Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You’ll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you’ll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You’ll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
Benefits and discounts from our global partners
One-on-one time with amazing mentors
A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
All the internet and coffee you can consume.
