Startup Weekend Ageing Population - 27-28/02 - 1 March 2015

Startup Weekend is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1800 past events in 500 cities around the world. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, join 300.000 starters and register now for the best weekend of your life. For the 13th Belgian edition, they are back in Brussels !

Have you ever felt the urge to:

  • Lock yourself in a room with 150 people for 54 hours
  • Test your limits of sleep deprivation
  • Get grilled by some of the toughest industry experts around

If the answer is yes, then chances are, you’re a crazy-ass entrepreneur and you should probably check out. 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 1,800 past events in 130 countries around the world in 2014.

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. It isn’t always pretty. It will be one of the most gruelling, mentally-draining weekends of your life. You will go at 1000 miles/hour, and guess what? It still won’t be fast enough. But, if you can stick it out, you will have gained the equivalent of months worth of learning, building, and networking in one weekend. Hell, you might even start your first company. Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, 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. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life! The event will be held in English.
