Startup Weekend

Three Startup Weekend will take place between February and April: The first is planned in Lausanne in February followed by events in Biel/Bienne in March and in Lucerne in April.

Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event that brings together designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. Experienced mentors help the teams. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Startup weekends are an ideal opportunity to test ideas and to meet like-minded people and potential co-founders. Almost every month a Startup Weekend is held somewhere in Switzerland. In Spring three events are planned:
