What is Startup Weekend?
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 3000 past events in 135 countries around the world.
This is the fifth edition of Startup Weekend Bucharest and the first specialized edition – we are working on Fintech solutions.
Who can participate?
Anybody who is interested in Fintech. If you have an idea on how Blockchain, Big Data, AI and other technologies can be used to solve financial sectors issues, come and pitch! Both industry experts and people with less experience, but a lot of enthusiasm can join and form teams around an idea.
How does it work?
Participants that have an idea, get 1 minute to pitch. 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. Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a co-founder, 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.
This event is hosted through TechSociety, an initiative that aims to grow the local tech community stronger by providing free event space, as well as logistical and communication support, to all people that organize free tech-related events.
