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. Each participant will pitch their ideas or listen to others after which they will vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams. The idea must be new. 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, the teams will be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP (minimum viable product) that fits the needs of your target customer. During the course of the 54 hours, the teams will get feedback to enable them to iterate or pivot their approach.
